The closures include the Fort St. John branch, which will hold an inventory liquidation sale beginning on Saturday.

131 outlets in total will close, and $33 million worth of merchandise will be sold.

A press release says “The at-home video rental market has become increasingly more challenging with the rise of strong competition from cable providers, internet, kiosk operators and subscription-based mail delivery services”

The Edmonton Journal reports the chain’s U.S. stores will also close.
