Two Lincoln branches of Blockbuster have escaped the chop in a new round of store closures for the struggling rental chain.
The joint administrators today confirmed that they intend to close an additional 164 stores over the coming week as the result of an ongoing portfolio review.
Branches in Sleaford, Bourne, Grimsby and Scunthorpe have also escaped closure.
But nearby stores in Grantham, Stamford and Wisbech have all been axed, averaging around five job losses per store.
