TNR Kiosks Are Deep in Texas21 Feb, 2007 By: Jessica Wolf
TNR Entertainment, which operates The New Release brand of DVD rental kiosks, is increasing its presence in the company's home base of Texas.
The Houston-based company announced it has installed additional 51 automated DVD rental kiosks at unnamed high-traffic grocery stores throughout central and southern Texas cities including Austin, Dallas, Houston, Laredo, Waco and surrounding areas.
That brings the company's Texas installed base to 400 kiosks, making it one of TNR's top markets, according to the company.
TNR currently has more than 1,300 $1-per-day DVD rental kiosks installed across the country in such grocery chains as A&P, Dillon's, Food-4-Less, Food Lion, Fry's, H-E-B, Kroger, King Soopers, Publix, Quality Food Centers, Ralph's, Roundy's/Pick ‘N Save, and Spartan/Family Fare.
“Building on successful partnerships TNR enjoys with grocery retailers reinforces the win-win aspect of our business — a model that offers distinct benefits to the consumer, the retail partner and TNR as the vendor,” said Jeff Karbowiak, COO of TNR Entertainment.
