Rutter’s Farm Stores, York, Pa., is debuting Blockbuster Express DVD rental kiosks at 19 of its stores.
The big blue kiosks arrived this week, with plans to have them at all stores in the next few months. For ease of customer access, the kiosks are located outside on the stores’ front docks.
“We continue to look for fun, creative ways to deliver convenience to our customers,” said Scott Hartman, president and CEO of Rutter’s Farm Stores, which operates 54 convenience stores in Pennsylvania. “We added a dinner menu earlier this year, so now it’s possible to get dinner and a movie with a single stop at Rutter’s.”
The 24-hour kiosks hold more than 900 DVDs, and new-release movies are added every week. Movies cost $1 per night and can be returned to any Blockbuster Express kiosk. A customer can rent as many as three DVDs at any given time.
Blockbuster Express kiosks accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit cards, and debit cards with a Visa or MasterCard credit logo. No membership is required.
Rutter’s is providing the kiosks in partnership with NCR Corp., a global technology company.
