Twerton High Street Blockbuster store to close
The Blockbuster store in Bath is to close.
The shop in Twerton will shut on March 21 and signs confirming the closure have already appeared in its windows.
The closure comes after previous reassurance from the collapsed chain’s administrators that the High Street store was to stay open.
Blockbuster went into administration in January with the immediate closure of 168 stores nationally and the loss of 760 jobs.

Since then the company has announced the closure of a further 164 stores, including the Bath store.
Lee Manning, joint administrator from Deloitte, said: “We have continued to review the performance of individual stores since our appointment a month ago and have concluded that further closures are necessary in order to restructure the company for sale.”
Earlier this month supermarket chain Morrisons bought 49 Blockbuster stores and plans to reopen them as a new breed of smaller convenience stores.
A spokeswoman for Morrisons said she was not able to confirm if the Twerton store was one it had bought.
