Have any CDN stores been told to liquidate this week? I understand that a Calgary location closed their doors very suddenly last week.

Wind Mobile has been mentioned but unless you are a store in their current coverage area or one of their planned expansion areas in the future, I would be concerned. You can check www.windmobile.ca for their current and planned coverage areas.

Rogers, Videotron and other major players have already cut down on their number of stores and there is probably little interest in them acquiring Blockbuster Canada.

Movie Gallery/Hollywood Video first tried to sell their chain off in Canada a year or so back and ended up just liquidating the entire chain. I really don't see much of an option for Blockbuster Canada if someone like Wind Mobile doesn't purchase them for the retail presence.
