North Midland Blockbuster Closing

MIDLAND - DVD rental stores are soon becoming a thing of the past, at least in the Permian Basin.

The Blockbuster store on North Midkiff near Loop 250 is the latest to close its doors. The store is selling its DVDs, games and even its shelving.

We're told the owner didn't want to renew his franchise with Blockbuster.

Hollywood Video and Movie Gallery have already closed their West Texas locations as more people rent videos online or from vending machines like Red Box.
