Blockbuster Video has had its financial troubles over the past few years, but a new move to relocate its corporate headquarters from McKinney, Texas, to Dish's Douglas County, Colorado, home may be the turnaround the company needs. Dish acquired Blockbuster, taking the company out of bankruptcy in April 2011. The deal was seen by business insiders as a move for the second-largest satellite TV company to increase its ability to digitally stream movies and programs, similar to services offered by Netflix. The integration of the systems can take place once Blockbuster's facilities have been secured by relocation movers.
Corporate relocation companies are likely to be competing for this job, but Blockbuster should consider the benefits of a full-service corporate move. They will need a management team that coordinates with both the Texas and Colorado sites and establishes a plan to encompass every aspect of the move.
Blockbuster's relocation is expected to bring 150 new management jobs to Colorado. The moving and relocation company will be busy organizing the move, but once the two companies are operating in the same location, the business plan can move forward and can perhaps begin the process of rescuing the financial standing and reputation of Blockbuster.
