A look at the old Blockbuster Video Express in Westcliff-on-Sea, Southend.
Many thanks to my friend and fellow blogger Mark Routh for sending me these photos of the old Blockbuster Video Express store in Westcliff on Sea, Essex.
It's amazing the signs are still up seven years since the demise of the brand.
Since I found the remains of the Blockbuster Video store in Fallowfield, Manchester last October I've been intrigued to see the brand still has a lingering presence on the high street. It's always fun to see ghost signs, remnants of old & dead brands and interesting signage while out and about on our travels.
I found out the Blockbuster signage was still in place at the Westcliff-on-Sea store via this post on Instagram.
We should've been visiting family in Southend-on-Sea this summer but that trip has been postponed. Hopefully we'll get back down there soon so I can check out the old Blockbuster store too.
They've only taken the signs down a few weeks ago. The big shop has now been split into smaller shops. God only knows how long they will last
Hi Alex. Thank you for the update. A shame the signs have gone. It's nice that they stayed up for a fair few years. Cheers.
