Schnucks to install Redbox kiosks in stores

OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill. A regional supermarket chain has entered an agreement to install fully automated DVD rental kiosks in the more than 100 locations across seven states.

Schnucks announced Thursday that it had replaced its existing DVD kiosk provider with Redbox, immediately beginning its rollout in stores across Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Tennessee and Mississippi. The chain said it expects the rollout to be completed in June.

Each fully automated redbox kiosk holds 630 DVDs, representing up to 200 of the newest movie releases. Consumers simply use a touch screen 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.

"Redbox is delighted to expand our national footprint with one of the most reputable, family-owned grocery store chains in the Midwest," said Mitch Lowe, Redbox president. "We look forward to delivering a convenient, fun and affordable DVD rental experience to Schnucks customers."

Scott Schnuck, chairman and CEO said, "Providing exceptional customer service has been our mission for more than 70 years and we are excited to deliver the leading DVD experience to our customers. Our customers have asked for Redbox citing convenience and value and redbox supports our commitment of providing quality service at an affordable price."
