Movie Gallery shutting doors

By Energeticcity.ca staff


The Movie Gallery has announced it will be closing most of its stores nationwide, beginning this weekend.

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.
