CINCINNATI - Kroger-owned Ralph's supermarkets, Food 4 Less, and FoodsCo stores yesterday completed the installation of 50 DVD rental kiosks between them, bringing the total number of kiosks for the trio of Kroger chains' California stores to 161.
The kiosks came from TNR Entertainment, Houston, Texas, and were first-time installations for the cities of Fresno, Sacramento, Salinas, Santa Maria, Cathedral City Chula Vista, Downey, Escondido, Fontana, Indio, Lancaster, North Hollywood, Ontario, Oxnard, Palmdale, Pasadena, Torrance, and Victorville, said TNR.
"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, c.o.o. of TNR.
The New Release automated DVD rental kiosks allow customers to rent DVD titles for $1-a-day with no late fees. The kiosks house up to 1,000 units each, representing more than 200 titles, including new releases.
