Every original business has a copycat business ready to pounce.....it's all about competition. Now you have cable movies on demand, the Red Box at the grocer's and don't forget the library offers "free" movies for a week or more. The early birds get the deals not waiting for breakfast in bed....

Someone figured out how to do it better. Blockbuster became a dinosaur rather quickly. They needed to adapt and become Netfliz before Netflix did. Diversifying into TV would have been a could move too. The one in Gettysburg shut down a few months ago.
