Video stores safe for now
9:48am Thursday 21st February 2013 in Bury
BLOCKBUSTER stores in Bury and Radcliffe have escaped immediate closure following the DVD and video games rental company going into administration in January.
Last week, the joint administrators to Blockbuster said they intended to shut an additional 164 stores over the coming weeks as part of a phased closure. The remaining stores will continue to trade as usual whilst administrators progress negotiations with bidders. A spokesman said that the stores in Bolton Road, Bury, and Outwood Road, Radcliffe, were not among the 164 earmarked for closure.
