Blockbuster Express DVD kiosks come to QuikTrip

Today NCR announced it will deploy BLOCKBUSTER Express kiosks in nearly all 555 QuikTrip convenience stores in nine states: Arizona, Illinois, Iowa, Georgia, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas.

Consumers can conveniently rent their new release and classic DVDs online at BlockbusterExpress.com and return the DVD to any BLOCKBUSTER Express kiosk -- not just the location where they rented the DVD.

"QuikTrip stores take pride in offering customers immediate access to quality and economical products in a convenient environment," said Mike Thornbrugh, with QuikTrip. "We strive to offer relevant services and products to fit our customer's needs. NCR's BLOCKBUSTER Express-branded kiosks proved to be a perfect addition to our service offerings and enable us to add entertainment to the list of items we offer to our customers and their families."

"NCR's BLOCKBUSTER Express-branded kiosks are bringing efficiency, ease of use and entertainment to consumers," said Alex Camara, vice president and general manager of NCR Entertainment. "Our DVD-rental kiosk deployments continue to rise as c-stores such as QuikTrip realize the added value they can bring to customers while they make their purchases. By partnering with NCR, QuikTrip is providing customers the ease of one-stop shopping for all of their needs."

NCR operates the highest-capacity DVD-rental kiosk in the industry, with the capability to hold more than 900 DVDs each. For a full list of titles available at BLOCKBUSTER Express kiosks, visit www.blockbusterexpress.com. Consumers can also rent a DVD online from BLOCKBUSTERExpress.com.
