The new offering provides military shoppers with an affordable and convenient way to rent DVDs, Blu-Ray discs and video games. Red Box arrived at Fort McCoy Nov. 1. A kiosk is located outside the Fort McCoy Exchange, building 1538.

Red Box rentals are charged at a daily rate. New releases start at $1.20 for DVDs, $1.50 for Blu-Ray discs, $2 for video games, and new releases are added every Tuesday.

Online rentals are available as well. Shoppers select their favorite movies and games at redbox.com and pick them up from the kiosk during the next visit to the Exchange.

Returning movies is made even simpler by allowing customers to return movies and video games to any Red Box kiosk location on or off the installation.

"Movies are a great way to spend time with family or unwind," said the Fort McCoy Exchange's Service Business Manager, Dylan Blount. "This service will make that quality time even better."

The Exchange has the dual mission of providing authorized patrons with quality merchandise and services at competitively low prices and generating non-appropriated fund earnings as a supplemental source of funding for military Morale, Welfare and Recreation programs.
