Blockbuster Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection


On September 23, 2010, Blockbuster voluntarily filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.  It is Great Lakes Scrip Center's policy to stop selling the gift cards of a retailer who has filed for bankruptcy protection, therefore, once Great Lakes Scrip Center's inventory is depleted, Blockbuster gift cards will not be available.  Great Lakes Scrip Center will not accept returns of Blockbuster gift cards.  However, Blockbuster has received bankruptcy court approval to continue to honor gift cards during the company's reorganization.  Additional information on Blockbuster's restructuring and clarification that it will continue to operate business as usual can be found at http://www.blockbuster.com/content/v. .

Great Lakes Scrip Center recommends that you advise your families to use any Blockbuster gift cards, as soon as possible.
