Blockbuster UK entered administration in January and was purchased by Gordon Brothers Europe in March, saving a reported 2,000 jobs and keeping open 264 stores. Gordon Brothers Europe attempted to restructure Blockbuster UK and develop a digital platform, but Blockbuster's US parent company wouldn't allow it, the company told BBC in a statement.
The remaining 264 stores will remain in business while Gordon Brothers Europe seeks a buyer, though this move gets rid of 32 jobs at Blockbuster UK headquarters, the site says.
