Shops are set to shut

Have your say

ADMINISTRATORS have confirmed that two Blockbusters stores in Sheffield are to close.

Shops on Ridgeway Road, Gleadless, and Chesterfield Road, Woodseats, are on a new list of 129 set to close – on top of 31 already announced.

A dedicated employee helpline has been set up and an Employee Assistance Programme is running to help those staff facing redundancy find other jobs.

Stores will remain open for business as usual and customers will be notified in advance of closure so they can return their outstanding rental items beforehand.

Blockbusers went into administration as High Street stalwarts HMV and Jessops also announced they had called in the administrators.

HMV has said it will now accept gift vouchers from Tuesday after previously stating it would not.
