Rapid City Blockbuster Stores Remain Open

February 5, 2014, 3:35 PM by Angela Kennecke

Rapid City Blockbuster Stores Remain Open

Rapid City Blockbuster video stores survive nationwide closures.   Blockbuster is closing all corporate-owned stores, but the two store locations in Rapid City will remain open. 

Local owner Eric Seljeskog said, "We have no intention of closing either of the Rapid City store locations.  Both of the Rapid City stores are doing quite well despite what is happening with the corporate-owned stores.  In fact, contrary to closing, we've made a significant investment in capital improvements to carry these stores into the future."

After the Blockbuster corporate closing announcement in November, remaining franchisees were given several options: close their store locations along with the corporate stores, drop the Blockbuster name and continue doing business as an independent video retailer or become a Blockbuster licensee. 

Blockbuster Rapid City chose to become a licensee. Seljeskog says it gives him more freedom to operate his store the way he wants, including offering customers a "movie pass."   That's a subscription that allows the customer to rent and return movies whenever they want without every having to worry about due dates or late fees.
