More than a decade ago, a sticker on VHS tape rentals from Blockbuster read: "To Play is Human. To Rewind is Divine!"
If only time could be rewound.
Business at the is a far cry from its former glory. Fewer films than ever fill its shelves and even fewer entertainment-seeking customers roam its aisles.
The Joppa Road location will shutter its doors on April 10, said a store manager who requested not to be named.
At least 1,145 Blockbuster stores have either closed or been slated for closure since the company filed for bankruptcy protection in September; 186 closed in March alone, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Until the store's closure, previously-viewed DVDs, originally priced at $14.99, will be sold for less than $4.
But a temporary deal on DVDs wouldn't replace years of memories for James Chu, who works at the family-owned next door.
"If we ever had nothing to do, we'd walk over and rent a movie," said Chu, who has helped out at the dry cleaning business since he was in middle school.
The in the same shopping center also offers a Redbox DVD rental kiosk, but Chu said, "I'll probably just watch them online."
