Coinstar, LLC, a leader in self-service coin counting, today announced a new partnership with Allegiance Retail Services, LLC, to install up to 80 Coinstar® kiosks at Allegiance affiliate supermarket banners, including Foodtown in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
“We’re very pleased to sign this agreement with Allegiance,” said Lee Pantalone, senior director of sales at Coinstar. “We look forward to deepening our kiosk density creating even greater availability and convenience for consumers living in the Northeast, especially in the New York City metropolitan area.”
Allegiance affiliates who sign on to install Coinstar kiosks will receive full functionality coin-counting kiosks with features including coins-to-cash, no fee coin-to-eGift card and charity donation options.
