Independent forecourt Peterhead Motors has seen footfall grow and store sales rise since installing a state-of-the-art DVD rental machine.

Store manager Garry Haigh installed the touch-screen Rent it Here pod in a bid to attract new customers to the store. "We couldn’t be happier the pod hardly takes up any space on the shop floor. It’s bringing in new customers who perhaps wouldn’t previously had reason to pay us a visit; and we’re seeing sales uplifts in things like confectionery and snacks, which people are picking up along with their rentals."

Rent it Here units have a footprint of just 0.3sq m and new-release DVD and Blu-ray films are £2.99 to rent. Customers can also reserve films via the website.
