Weymouth Blockbuster jobs at risk
3:56pm Wednesday 16th January 2013 in Latest
JOBS are at risk for staff at the Weymouth branch of Blockbuster following news that the DVD and video games rental firm has gone into administration.
More than 4,000 staff who work for the chain across the country face losing their jobs.
Deloitte, which is handling the administration, said the collapse was driven by competition from internet firms and digital streaming of movies and games.
The Uxbridge-based business opened its first store in London in 1989 and now trades from 528 outlets employing 4,190 staff.
