Blockbuster (Piedmont Ave) in Oakland - R.I.P.

Finally, the last day to rent at Blockbuster was Jan 29, 2012.  The next 2 months are slated for a massive clearance sale.  Now, we can say we're the only video rental store on Piedmont Ave.  We moved to our current location in mid-1993 and a few months later Blockbuster blindsided us by opening at the old Foot Locker site.  No hard feelings for the last 19 difficult years!  There's no winners here... we're all victims of Netflix and Comcast.
