TORONTO, Sept. 10 /CNW/ - Curiosk Marketing Solutions Inc. (Curiosk) has
released their new in-store, touch-screen wine information kiosk. Launched
recently at the Wine Rack located at 77 Wellesley St. E in downtown Toronto,
the innovative kiosk displays product information on screen after a simple
scan of a wine bottle's bar code. The patent-pending system then allows
customers to create a personalized greeting card designed to fit over the neck
of the bottle. Swipe a credit card at the kiosk and for $2.95 the personal
greeting along with selected wine information prints on a gift card right
there and in seconds. Fold the card, slip it over the neck of the bottle and
the purchaser is ready to go.
"Since customers pay a nominal amount for the card, retailers can put in
the Curiosk system with very little risk or cost" said David Weinberg,
President and Founder of Curiosk. "With this low cost of entry, we hope to
rapidly penetrate the North American wine retail market. By using our kiosks,
customers will learn about their wine selection - such as tasting notes, food
pairing notes, and cellaring information - and be able to take the information
home to share with others. Greetings such as Happy Birthday, Thanks For
Dinner, I Love You, or I'm Sorry... can be selected, and then customers may
add a unique message. It's as easy as Scan, Personalize, and Print."
"Curiosk was created with the mission of bringing a value-added solution
to North American wine retailers" said Weinberg. "Our concept is innovative
and informative, creative and convenient - four attributes brought together to
let customers make a better and more convenient purchase. I am confident that
customers, retailers, and wineries will enjoy the Curiosk experience."
The Curiosk kiosk is now available for use at Wine Rack (77 Wellesley St.
E., Toronto) and will be available at other leading retailers in Canada and
the United States by the end of 2007.
