THE city’s Blockbuster is closing down, with seven employees set to lose their jobs.

The video rental store, on Market Road, is one of more than 60 branches to close.

An announcement was made by Moorfields Corporate Recovery LLP release today (November 21).

Joint administrators Simon Thomas and Nick O’Reilly, said: “The decision to close some stores has not been taken lightly, however the remaining stores remain open for business and we are continuing to market the business for sale as a going concern. Currently we are offering attractive discounts which are generating additional sales.

“We want to be as open and transparent as possible throughout this process and will hopefully be in a position, within the next 7 days, to provide staff and customers with another update very shortly.”
