Blockbuster brick and mortar stores took the hit all over the country and are closing up shop to capitalize on how people grab their video on line or in the mail.
The store on the Post Road in Larchmont is on life support…and unconfirmed rumor has it that space and the dormant Sleepy’s next door (which moved into the former marine store recently) will combine into something this area just can’t seem to get enough of –another drug store! woo hoo! -a Walgreens. The last Walgreens in the area, in New Rochelle, rose in the ashes of the Thruway Diner.
