Redbox will be shutting down all Canadian locations. Last day for rentals will be February 13 and returns back by March 5.
The company specializes in DVD, Blu-ray Disc, and video game rentals via automated retail kiosks. In 2012, Redbox had over 42,000 kiosks at more than 34,000 locations worldwide.
Like Blockbuster and Target, the American owners saw no future in Canada And so ends any national organization renting DVDs in Canada.
