TNR Adds 50 Kiosks in California14 May, 2007 By: Jessica Wolf
TNR Entertainment is broadening its reach of TNR-branded DVD rental kiosks throughout California.
The company announced today it has has installed 50 additional kiosks from Sacramento to San Diego, following the company's initial entry into the state earlier this year. This brings to 161 the total number of TNR kiosks in California, all of which are located in selected Ralph's supermarkets, Food 4 Less and FoodsCo stores.
A majority of the newly installed kiosks are located in first-time areas for TNR, ranging from cities in the northern/central parts of the state such as such as Fresno, Sacramento, Salinas, and Santa Maria, to southern sites such as Cathedral City, Chula Vista, Downey, Escondido, Fontana, Indio, Lancaster, North Hollywood , Ontario, Oxnard, Palmdale, Pasadena, Torrance and Victorville. These are in addition to new kiosks installed in widely established TNR areas such as Los Angeles, Long Beach, Orange County, Palm Springs, Riverside, the San Fernando Valley and San Diego.
“The Western United States has become one of TNR's biggest geographic regions, particularly California, and we consider this expansion as simply the beginning, based on the exceptional customer acceptance of the rental kiosk concept and our strong relationship with Kroger,” said Jeff Karbowiak, COO of TNR. “We plan on significant further West Coast expansion for the company.”
