NCR to add kiosks near closed Blockbuster locations


New York City NCR Corp. is taking advantage of the shrinking brick-and-mortar movie rental business by tracking Blockbuster's widespread store closures to position its own DVD kiosks.

As Blockbuster carries out its plan to shut down more than 500 stores this year, NCR is opening as many as four kiosks in each vacated market, according to a Barrons report.

NCR, which licenses the Blockbuster Express brand for its kiosks, plans to more than double its presence to 10,000 kiosks nationwide by the end of this year.
