Redbox is continuing it’s expansion (and world domination) with plans to add over 2,700 locations at Wal-marts across the country in 2008.
From the press release:
Redbox, the fully automated DVD rental system featuring new release rentals for $1 per night, recently announced an agreement with Wal-Mart to expand its number of automated DVD rental kiosks to the majority of Wal-Martâ€™s 3,542 stores nationwide. Currently available at nearly 800 U.S. Wal-Mart locations, redbox will install kiosks at approximately 2,700 additional Wal-Mart stores beginning in the first half of 2008 and continuing into 2009.
Redbox kiosks are now available at more than 6,700 locations nationwide, including leading grocery stores, select McDonaldâ€™sÂ® restaurants, and Walgreens and Wal-Mart locations in select markets. The companyâ€™s expanded Wal-Mart presence further solidifies redboxâ€™s position as the number one DVD rental provider in the country based on number of U.S. locations.
Add that up and that puts Redbox in over 10,000 locations within a year. Now if they only had a location just outside my front door…
