Previous occupant of the unit that is/was my local Maplin was Blockbuster. It'd be a brave business to take on that unit.
I've seen some locations like that. There's a department store in what was the county's first mall, had three different department stores in it, and all three chains went bankrupt. Heck, the entire mall itself died, and they demolished the main section in the middle to build a HomeCrappo. These days the old department store is a postal sorting center (what chance of THAT going bankrupt?)
