Blockbuster moving headquarters to Douglas County

April 23, 2012

Blockbuster, the movie and game sales and rental company, is moving its worldwide headquarters to the Meridian International Office Park in Douglas County, the governor’s Office of Economic Development announced Monday.

The move will bring more than 150 management positions to the metro-area over the next five years. Blockbuster, which has been losing its luster to movie providers such as Netflix and McDonald’s, was acquired by DISH, the Douglas County-based pay-TV provider, nearly a year ago. DISH employs nearly 5,000 people along the Front Range.

DISH intends to “reinvigorate” the Blockbuster brand, said DISH CEO Joe Clayton. Somebody’s got to. When did you last patronize a Blockbuster store?

It’s new if it’s new to you

Deja Blue, the gently used designer clothing store run by Goodwill Denver, has been such a hit since its March 24 opening that the Cherry Creek North store sold the equivalent of three full stores of merchandise since the first day.

Major designer items that were snatched up immediately included a $400 Marc Jacobs handbag that sold for $40, as well as a number of Coach purses and name-brand jeans like Citizens of Humanity, J-Brand, Sevens and Lucky.

Note to self: Get over there!!!!
