Fill 'Er Up With Gas -- And A Film
If there's anything left in your bank account after filling up for gas at an Arco station in Central and Southern California, you might want to pop into the AM/PM convenience store in the rear of the station to rent a movie at one of their new kiosks. Home Media magazine is reporting that the gasoline retailer has begun rolling out Redbox-type kiosks at its California locations with plans to install them at 1,100 AM/PM locations in 10 states, including those it operates at BP sites, where DVDs will rent for $1.00 per night. The magazine said that customers will be able to learn which movies are available and which can be ordered in advance by logging in at www.ampmmovies.com. However, the site is currently only in its embryonic stage and is not functioning.
