AcceptanceNOW Unlocks Potential in New York City

AccceptanceNOW LogoWhat do a key, a booth and AcceptanceNOW have in common?

The answer: Retail’s Big Show.

AcceptanceNOW, (ANOW), a nationwide pioneer in the operation of lease-to-own kiosks within third-party retail outlets, will showcase its earning potential at the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) Retail’s Big Show in New York City from Jan. 15-17, at booth 627.

ANOW is calling for attendees to stop by and “pick up a key.”

“The key represents access to an untapped revenue source of credit-constrained consumers,” said Stephen McKinley, Vice President of Sales and Client Relations for ANOW. “AcceptanceNOW kiosks have delivered over $2 billion in added sales to our retail partners. And more and more retailers are realizing that AcceptanceNOW is the key to driving more revenue for the brick and mortar stores.”

Coworkers manning ANOW’s booth will be handing out printed information featuring a golden key to those interested in learning more about the business.  Booth 627 will be located at the EXPO hall entrance.

Retail’s Big Show is an annual convention that features 300 plus speakers from industry executives at top retail companies. According to NRF’s web site, the event boasts 33,000 attendees, more than 510 exhibitors, 118 sponsors and over 3,300 retail companies from around the world.

“We believe the NRF ‘Big Show’ will provide AcceptanceNOW an opportunity to share many of our success stories,” McKinley said. “AcceptanceNOW has grown to over 1900 locations from coast to coast in a very short time. There is no doubt that the momentum is building, which not only improves the customer’s shopping experience but incrementally grows the retailer’s top line.”

AcceptanceNOW, a division of Rent-A-Center, Inc. (NASDAQ/NGS:RCII), a rent-to-own industry leader, operates 1870 lease-to-own kiosks in third-party retail stores across the country.
