Arbroath Blockbuster escapes closure again

THE ARBROATH Blockbuster store has once again escaped the axe after the troubled retailer announced a further 164 store closures.

Last month, the DVD rental chain entered administration with 160 shops closing immediately.

Today (Wednesday) it was revealed another 164 shops would also go but the Arbroath store on Fisheracre would not be among them.

Administrators Deloitte said the remaining stores will continue to trade as usual whilst administrators progress negotiations with bidders.
