BLOCKBUSTER customers had their last chance to grab a bargain yesterday as the store closed its doors for the final time.

The retail outlet at the North Plantation, which had been in Guernsey for 15 years, is one of 264 Blockbuster branches to close across the UK.

It follows financial troubles experienced by the chain, which went into administration last month.

A total of eight employees, three full-time and five part-time staff, have lost their jobs due to the closure in Guernsey.

Manager Richard Vahey said the majority had found alternative employment.

He expected there to be a few tears after the doors had been closed.

'Some of the staff have been here seven to eight years,' he said.

'It is a sad day and everybody has said how sad they are for the store to be going.'
