She credited the "amazing, loyal customers" for the store's longevity. She said she has been working at Blockbuster for 14 years and seen her share of heartache as stores closed.
She remembers when Netflix came out. "Oh man, we need to get ahead of this," she remembers thinking.
Now, about a quarter of the customers at her store are tourists. It's a bit of a destination. Some take photos, she said.
At its peak, Blockbuster operated more than 9,000 stores, the New York Times reported in 2011.
The Alaska stores' closures come after national attention on HBO's "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver."
Two months ago the show sent a jockstrap worn by Russell Crowe in the 2005 movie "Cinderella Man" and other items to an Anchorage store, which displayed it in an effort to ramp up business.
It worked temporarily, according to Kevin Daymude, general manager of Blockbuster Alaska. But ultimately, it wasn't enough.
He thanked customers in the Facebook post announcing the stores' closures: "Thank you for sticking by us throughout all these years. I can't tell you how much it means to us. We hope to see you at our stores during the closing, even if it's just to say 'Hello'. What a great time to build your media library and share some Blockbuster memories with us."
Some have credited expensive internet as a factor in keeping the Alaska locations open longer than most stores.
