Blockbuster to Move Headquarters to Colorado23 Apr, 2012 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Blockbuster LLC April 23 said it will move its corporate headquarters from Dallas to Denver and relocate more than 150 management positions during the next five years.
Dish Network LLC, which owns and operates about 1,000 Blockbuster stores nationwide, said the movie rental company would relocate its headquarters from McKinney, Texas, to the Meridian International Office Park in Douglas County near Denver.
In addition to the management positions, an undisclosed number of additional positions will be offered to McKinney staffers willing to relocate.
“We’re excited to begin writing a new chapter in Blockbuster’s history by moving our headquarters to the Rocky Mountains,” said Blockbuster president Michael Kelly. “Blockbuster’s rich heritage grew exponentially in Texas, and we appreciate everything the citizens of Texas did to make us feel welcome. Now it’s time to align our staffing with our recent business developments as we lay the groundwork for growth in our digital, in-store and by-mail services.”
