Some 80 Xtra Mart c-store locations are adding NCR’s Blockbuster Express-branded kiosks, which allow customers to rent DVDs with no membership required.
Customers use their credit card at the machine and are charged $1 per night until they return the DVD to any Blockbuster Express kiosk-not just the kiosk where they rented the DVD. The kiosks will be stationed outside Xtra Mart locations, allowing customers to rent a movie any time day or night, making the DVD kiosks even more convenient for consumers.
“Xtra Mart is constantly striving to provide premium services and products to our customers. Installing DVD kiosks outside our stores accomplishes just that,” said Robert Sanft, category manager at Xtra Mart. “We knew that we wanted to partner with a company that was as dedicated as Xtra Mart to providing customers with fast and reliable access to products and services.”
Xtra Mart has 150 locations throughout Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania and Maryland. Kiosk deployment will begin in May and is expected to finish this summer.
“By partnering with NCR, Xtra Mart is providing its customers with a total shopping experience, including fuel, food and entertainment at convenient locations with flexible hours,” said Alex Camara, vice president and general manager, NCR Entertainment. “Our DVD-rental kiosk deployments are continuing to grow as more retail partners decide to incorporate entertainment options into the everyday shopping benefits they offer customers.”
