Last week, it was announced the Blockbuster would be shutting down all of its physical stores by the end of January 2014. It appears that the Uptown location will start selling their collection ASAP, as one Minnesota resident snapped this image and posted it on Instagram.

Looking to stock up on seasons of your favorite cable show? Hoping to snag some shitty '80s horror flicks for your archives? Are you missing the volleyball flick in your Airbud collection? You'll have the opportunity to see what horrible, horribly awesome, and pretty good stuff is available to add to your DVD pile, as the sign on the store's door indicates that they're starting to liquidate their merchandise this Thursday.

Calls to the shop have yielded no response (probably because they're currently closed, natch), but if the store is sticking to its regular hours, then the sale will begin at 10 a.m.

The Uptown Blockbuster is located at 2224 Hennepin Avenue in Minneapolis.

Uptown Blockbuster is the same as the other Twin Cities stores-sale started November 14th and goes through mid January with weekly prices drops.

Not really worth the time...looked like they were selling everything for $9.99...which seems like a joke for dvds.

When is "this tomorrow"? I know. Who has the time to proof a headline these days.

DVDs are already pretty cheap, who needs scratched up Blockbuster ones in broken boxes? DVDs are just fine, Sandy, since you might not always have online access to stream what you want and there's no guarantee that the company providing access to your digital version of something will always be there. Goodbye company, goodbye movie.

The Blockbuster in my town closed last year. We went to see what DVDs were on sale as soon as they posted the sale. What a joke. There's no way you can get complete seasons of anything. It's good if you're missing disc three of season one of the Sopranos but that's about it. Everything is still priced way too high for it to be any sort of sale, especially for well used DVDs. And at the store I went to there were boxes and boxes and boxes of DVDs just in paper sleeves so you had to take the DVD out of the paper to see what it was. It would take forever to find anything good. But this is my opinion on the matter.
