Chartbusters Irish DVD rental chain to close

Where are we supposed to get our sun tan now?

Irish DVD rental chain Chartbusters today closed all of its stores after the company went into voluntary liquidation with the loss of 87 jobs.

The chain blamed the closure on the “severe and unprecedented nature of the current economic downturn”. Their official website posted the following statement this morning
