OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill. -- Circle K will expand the presence in its stores of Redbox fully automated DVD rental kiosks from Redbox Automated Retail, a wholly owned subsidiary of Coinstar Inc., the company reported.
The kiosks are currently installed at select Circle K stores in Arizona, California and Ohio, and the new agreement includes more locations throughout the Circle K network.
"Redbox continues to expand our footprint nationwide as consumers seek the convenience and value of Redbox fully automated DVD rentals," said Mitch Lowe, president of Redbox. "The convenience store channel provides new opportunities for Redbox to service more consumers, and we are proud to expand our presence at Circle K, an industry leader."
Each Redbox kiosk holds approximately 700 DVDs, representing up to 200 of the newest movie releases, according to the manufacturer. Consumers use a touchscreen to select their favorite movies, swipe a valid credit or debit card and then go.
Additionally, customers can keep the DVD as long as they’d like for $1 per night plus tax, and return it to any one of Redbox’s more than 15,000 locations nationwide. After 25 nights, rental charges cease and the DVD is the customer’s to keep.
