Redbox will continue to keep their DVD machines in nearly 4,000 Walmart locations across the United States, says a recent report:
Redbox Automated Retail, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Coinstar announced a renewal agreement with Walmart to continue featuring Redbox® kiosks at more than 3,700 Walmart locations nationwide. The agreement extends the availability of Redbox kiosks and builds upon the companies’ more than five-year relationship.
So that answers the question that many Walmart locations are indeed big enough and have enough traffic to merit having a Redbox featured at their store.
In fact, I was driving past a store the other day — it wasn’t my local Walmart, but was either a Walgreen’s or CVS store (I guess it wasn’t a Blockbuster’s, huh?) and I saw two Redbox machines outside the location.
I thought to myself: That’s probably great on those Friday and Saturday nights when the Redbox machine lines are extra crowded and long — at least people don’t have to wait as long as they would have if there were only one Redbox machine at that store.
So check the link above if you want to apply to receive a Redbox machine at your location, and to find out further information from the Coinstar-owned Redbox company.
