Two new super Blockbuster stores are being tested in the Fortworth Texas area. You will be able to snake, drink and play your favorite next gen Wii games on a 62″ Flat screen TV, all from the comforts of a nice leather couch. I am pretty sure these screens and details are making you drool, I know I am.


This concept caters to games, featuring more video games and a gaming center where customers can play all the next-gen consoles on 62″ televisions. It’s a great place to try out games an


We want our customers to feel at home in our stores, so we’re testing two concepts with lounge areas. Both stores have couches, tables, and free wireless Internet access. One has a self-service beverage bar with hot and cold drinks. The other contains a full-service bar with an assortment of hot and cold drinks served by baristas.

All stores feature some other more subtle changes – a new layout and shorter shelves for easier browsing, updates like flat screen TVs and even a spiffy new paint job and color scheme. All to improve the BLOCKBUSTER experience for our customers.

While these concepts are specifically in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, BLOCKBUSTER is introducing changes nationwide to provide convenient access to media entertainment for all of our customers. BLOCKBUSTER stores across the country will feature:

  • More copies of the movies you love
  • The latest video games for retail purchase, including PS3, Xbox and Wii platforms
  • Enhanced selection of snacks, to complement your movie night
  • Framed art and entertainment-related exclusive products for sale
