CORONA, Calif., May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AVT, Inc. (OTC Markets: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com), a technology leader in developing automated retailing systems, self service kiosks and micro-stores, announced that their innovative, upscale Utique Shops are being placed in the new Delta Airlines Terminal at JFK International Airport in New York.

"Retailers of all sizes are looking for new and efficient methods of distribution," said Shannon Illingworth, Founder and Chairman of AVT, Inc. "Our next generation Utique Stores take Automated Retailing to the next level, with stunning graphics, style-forward product selections, and unsurpassed customer interactivity," he added.

Utique Shops are part of the growing trend of "Retail on Demand," which offers consumer access to the products they desire, when and where they want, 24-hours a day. Utique Shops allow people to shop for clothing, electronics, cosmetics, gifts, fashion accessories and more, at any hour of the day.

Several Utique Shops have already become popular "must-go-to" destinations, including within the Cosmopolitan Hotel and the Palms Resort in Las Vegas.

"AVT has the widest range of automated retailing solutions in the industry," according to James Winsor, company CEO. "From our ready-made units, to highly customized systems, our Micro-Stores and automated lockers, to biometrically controlled-access units, and now the Utique Store, we offer a solution for every size company, every specification, and every automated retailing and self-service need. "

The Utique Shop has been called "The world's first automated luxury shop," and have been featured in publications such as: The New York Times, W Magazine, In Style, Self, Vogue, and O: The Oprah Magazine.

"One of the most impressive aspects of the Utique Store is that it not only sells merchandise, but it creates improved brand value for the products featured," Illingworth stated. "By being selective about the product mix and locations we choose to operate, we can create an upscale shopping experience that has tremendous appeal."
