      Blockbuster to close remaining US stores

      It's the end of an era.

      Blockbuster,{}the one-time king of the video rental business,{}is closing its remaining 300 company owned stores in the United States.{}{} It is also{}shutting down its DVD{}mail operation in January.

      Less than 10{}years ago,{}Blockbuster had 9,000 stores.

      The company will continue as a streaming service available to customers of its parent company Dish Network.

      A handful of independent Blockbuster franchise store owners will be allowed to stay in business.
