Town Centre Blockbuster Store Is To Close

Monday February 18 2013

ADMINISTRATORS have confirmed that the Blockbuster store in the town centre is to close.

Eight staff at the Peel Street store are now facing redundancy but it will remain open for business as usual.

Customers will be notified in advance of closure so they can return outstanding rental items.

Another store on Station Road in Wombwell has escaped closure and will continue to trade as normal while administrators Deloitte - also in charge of HMV - negotiate with bidders.

A spokesman for Deloitte said there will be a number of closing down promotions across stores to supplement those already on offer across the estate.

Lee Manning, joint administrator, said: "We have continued to review the performance of individual stores since our appointment a month ago and have concluded that further closures are necessary in order to restructure the company for sale."

Yet another nail in the coffin for Barnsley town centre.
Never mind at least we have plenty of poundshops and charity shops to buy TAT from.

What is the point of keeping the wombwell store open and closing the town centre one. The town centre one has more range and more copy's to offer customers. I am a member of both but I prefer to use the town centre one for that reason. My money's going on that it will be another poundshop selling yet more cheap crap.
