Bye-bye Blockbuster


Previously viewed videos are selling for $3.99-$9.99 as the Blockbuster at 7530 Fay Ave. liquidates its inventory (and the shelves and cases that hold it all) for a Jan. 3 closing. The La Jolla video-rental store is one of four in San Diego County slated for shuttering.

Store manager Jill Collyer said she believes the lack of foot traffic killed the La Jolla store, as most of the remaining Blockbuster stores are inside busy shopping centers and doing well. ‘Our plan is to stay open through Jan. 3, and we are getting other merchandise from neighboring stores to liquidate, too,’ she said. “All sales are final. No personal checks.’
