"Blockbuster Says It Has No Plans To File For Bankruptcy
Posted by Eric Savitz

Blockbuster (BBI) this afternoon confirmed in an interview with Tech Trader Daily that the company has hired Kirkland and Ellis for assistance with our ongoing financing and capital raising initiatives, but added that we do not intend to file for bankruptcy.

Blockbuster spokeswoman Karen Raskopf said the company will provide an update on its refinancing efforts on its March 19 earnings call.

She noted that the company said on its third-quarter earnings call that the company has a $28 million term loan and a revolving credit line that come due in August 28. The companys most recent balance sheet shows a total $209 million of long-term debt classified as short term."

It's the stench of the old VHS tapes in the back rotting

Haven't been in my local one for ages. Last time I did the film rentals were overpriced and there is never any good savings on games. I thought it was on its way out or lacking funding as it looks like they haven't refurbished since the 80s. Only good point is they have one of the most helpful and friendliest assistants I've ever met in any customer service experience. Really nice bloke. It's a shame he shares the store with a work colleague that has the biggest attitude problem. He actually serves you as if he is doing you a huge favour, at the same time looks at you like you just cussed his mum or something!

Probably the dust from the 80's!
