"We hope to see you at our stores during the closing, even if it's just to say "Hello", Blockbuster Alaska said in a Facebook post.

For years now in Alaska, announcements have cropped up every few months that another Blockbuster will shut its doors.

Stores in the Denver area closed back in November 2013.

It was the great poet Percy Shelley who once wrote: "And on the pedestal, these words appear: My name is Blockbuster, Video Store of Video Stores; Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!"

"We have no plans on closing anytime soon", Harding added.

We imagine you're now wondering where the last Blockbuster in the United States is.

"We were very up front with them, and they said, 'That's OK, we want you to have it anyway, ' " he said.

"Daily, we have people coming in and going, 'Oh my gosh. you're a Blockbuster".

"Alaska had always been - I always thought they'd outlast us", she said.

Alan Payne, owner of the Alaska stores through licensee Border Entertainment, explained that he and his team had determined sometime previous year that renewing the remaining stores' leases did not make financial sense. Kevin Daymude, Blockbuster Alaska general manager Kevin Daymude told CNN affiliate KTVA.

"Thank you for sticking by us throughout all these years", Daymude said in a heartfelt message on Facebook.

The Anchorage store recently acquired actor Russel Crowe's jockstrap that he wore during the 2005 movie "Cinderella Man", as well as other memorabilia, including a vest Crowe wore in 2012's "Les Miserables", a robe and boxing shorts also from "Cinderella Man", a hood from 2010's "Robin Hood" and both Crowe and Denzel Washington's set chairs from 2007's Oscar-nominated "American Gangster". Alaskans, Oliver reported, still depend on Blockbuster since they have limited access to the kind of internet that can support the rest of the nation's streaming habits. According to The Oregonian, the stores' manager Kevin Daymude will not offer any rentals beyond Sunday night. The Wasilla, North Pole and Soldotna stores closed this year, as did another Anchorage location near the intersection of Old Seward Highway and Huffman Road.
