Redbox to Expand Walgreens Presence27 Feb, 2008 By: Chris Tribbey
DVD rental kiosk operator Redbox is expanding its reach again.
After testing its product in Walgreens stores in the Southwest and Midwest, the retailer has agreed to place Redbox kiosks in roughly 2,000 of its stores nationwide.
The announcement comes on the heels of Redbox's announcement that its kiosks would be placed in nearly all of Wal-Mart's 3,500 U.S. stores.
“Redbox's agreement with Walgreens is an example of the companies' shared commitment to providing convenience and value to our customers,” said Redbox CEO Gregg Kaplan. “Featuring the latest DVD rentals for $1 per night, Redbox provides Walgreens' consumers with another great reason to visit their neighborhood Walgreens locations.”
