The redbox DVD rental kiosks enable customers to use a touchscreen to select a movie and pay with a credit or debit card. "Offering our customers in-store DVD rentals is just another way we are striving to make our customers' busy lives easier," said Duncan Mac Naughton, Supervalu executive vice president, merchandising and marketing. "This service will enable our customers to combine two trips and save time." The agreement with Redbox Automated Retail, Oakbrook Terrace, Ill., follows a successful pilot in several Supervalu banners and locations, the company said in a statement.
