OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill. -- Kum & Go L.C. will expand the presence of its redbox fully automated DVD rental kiosks to more than 281 Kum & Go c-stores this year. The kiosks are now found at 26 Kum & Go stores in Iowa, Arkansas, Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma.
"Redbox has made a positive impact on our stores and has been very popular among our customers," said Kyle J. Krause, president and CEO, Kum & Go. "Consumers trust us to provide value and convenience and the expanded presence of redbox allows us to continue to deliver on that commitment."
Each redbox kiosk holds 630 DVDs, representing up to 200 of the newest movie releases, the company said in a statement. Consumers use a touchscreen to select their favorite movies, swipe a valid credit or debit card and go. For added convenience, movie lovers can reserve DVDs online at www.redbox.com or via an iPhone and pick them up at the redbox location of their choice.
Mitch Lowe, president of Redbox Automated Retail, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Coinstar Inc., said the company continues to experience strong growth as a result of its ability to deliver convenient and affordable entertainment to consumers while increasing traffic for its retail partners. "We look forward to our expansion within Kum & Go's network of busy locations and loyal customers."
The kiosks are available at more than 20,000 locations nationwide, including select McDonald's restaurants, leading grocery and c-stores and Walmart and Walgreens stores in select markets. The company has rented more than 500 million DVDs to date.
Kum & Go is the third-largest private owner operator of convenience stores in the United States. The family-owned company began in 1959 in Hampton, Iowa, and has grown to more than 430 stores in 11 states.
