The last two home video rental1 shops in the northwest U.S. state of Alaska said Thursday that they will close their business Monday. 美国阿拉斯加州最后两家家庭影视出租店周四表示，他们将于下周一关张。 Blockbuster Alaska, the northwest operator of U.S. home movie and video game rental services through brick-and-mortar rental shops, announced the closure that would leave Blockbuster with only one store still in operation across the United States. "We regret to inform our customers that Blockbuster Video will be closing both the College and Debarr stores starting July 16th," Kelli Vey, district manager, and Kevin Daymude, general manager at Blockbuster, wrote in a Facebook post. They said the two stores will reopen Tuesday for an inventory2 sale though July and August before completely ending their 28 years of Blockbuster-brand service in the state. Blockbuster has long struggled to survive in Alaska as its retail3 business of home video rental was constantly hurt and dwindled4 in the past years due to the aggressive expansion of Internet streaming services and the rapid growth of smartphones and social media that have largely changed the way of people's life. "We can't string this out any longer without creating some financial problems," Alan Payne, who owns the Alaska stores, told the local Anchorage Daily News.
