Franchises?

Are there any surviving franchise stores out there or were they eradicated when BBV was bought by DISH/did they close long before that? I know the one franchise anywhere near me (like 2 hours away) ceased being a BBV in 2011 closed down for like 3-4 weeks and reopened as an indy store but thats the only one I knew off.

I think most of them shut down when BBI went with no late fees and free exchanges, drove them out of business just like it did the company stores.

Zales owned a lot of them, and ended up selling them back to corporate around 2007-2008..there was a few left then, but they all closed.
