CORONA, Calif., Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AVT, Inc. (OTC Markets: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com), considered one of the driving forces in automated retailing, is cautioning retailers to not become the next Blockbuster.

"No one thought that Blockbuster stores would fail so quickly, but they were taken over by Redbox automated systems," said Shannon Illingworth, Chairman and Founder of AVT. "The entire DVD retailing model changed virtually overnight, and now savvy retailers are turning to automated solutions to make sure that they survive this revolution in retailing," he added.

AVT's systems are now in use by some of the largest retailers, brands and companies in the world. The company's latest innovation, the UShop, which combines automated retailing with Internet shopping, could be the next Redbox, according to Illingworth.

"These systems are exceeding our expectations and generating tremendous consumer interest," Illingworth stated. "I believe they will soon be used as an extension, if not a replacement for many of the stores that are now a part of the American fabric."

The innovative UShops puts AVT in the center of a $4.7 trillion market, according to U.S. Commerce Department.
