Fresh off the news that it has reached nearly 25,000 installed kiosks around the country, Redbox has announced deals that will place kiosks at Schnucks supermarket locations across several states, as well as at Naval installations around the country.
The Redbox/Schnucks deal will place kiosks at more than 100 of the popular supermarket chain’s locations in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Tennessee and Mississippi. The Redbox kiosks will be installed after “Schnucks’ decision to replace its existing DVD kiosk provider with Redbox” according to a press release from the kiosk renter. The previous provider appears to be NCR’s Blockbuster Express.
Redbox president Mitch Lowe said the following about the agreement in the same press release:
“Redbox is delighted to expand our national footprint with one of the most reputable, family-owned grocery store chains in the Midwest . . . We look forward to delivering a convenient, fun and affordable DVD rental experience to Schnucks customers.”
According to another press release, Redbox is the exclusive supplier of DVD kiosks to the Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) and will be adding approximately 20 new kiosks to the 66 boxes that are already located at Naval installations around the country. Lowe said the following in the release:
“We are proud to work with NEXCOM to provide servicemen and women and their families with convenient access to affordable, new release DVD rentals at Naval bases across the U.S. . . . Redbox kiosks can be found in more than 21,000 convenient locations nationwide and we are pleased to include U.S. Naval bases among our growing number of locations.”
