Uniquely developed to reach Money Mart’s core customer base, the network is available to external advertisers seeking to reach the same consumer demographic as Money Mart’s.

Channel M develops custom content and advertisements specifically targeted toward each in-store TV network’s target shopper demographic and maintains an infrastructure capable of handling all aspects of any in-store TV network, including but not limited to technology, content production, network installation, and advertising sales.

“We have partnered with Channel M to enhance the Money Mart customer experience, decrease perceived wait times, and drive sales and awareness of available products and offerings,” said Paul Koulogeorge, vice president of marketing for the Dollar Financial Group. “We are excited about the potential that in-store TV presents to extend beyond sales generation to the creation of additional revenue streams by opening up our customer base for advertisers.”

The programming will be divided into three display areas, which include: music videos and custom entertainment feature programming; a scrolling news feed; and space for flash billboards and advertisements. Advertisements can also be cycled through within the main display area programming in :15, :30, or :60 second spots.

“Advertising opportunities on Channel M in-store TV networks provide advertisers with access to a captive audience while they are actively shopping or waiting in line ready to make a purchase decision,” said Dennis Quinn, President of Sales and Marketing of Channel M. “Advertisers can further engage this audience through capitalizing on the flexibility of digital delivery to specifically target advertisements geographically, by time of day, or by display location in each individual store.”

The Money Mart TV network is open to advertisers from across the following industries: Money Wire Services, Mobile Phone Companies, Automotive Parts, Automotive Retail, Quick Serve Restaurants, Convenience Stores, Snacks, Beer and Liquor, Video Games, Movie Studios, Local Transit Authorities.

At September 30, 2008, Dollar Financial Corp consisted of 1,377 stores, including 1,064 company-operated financial services stores and 313 franchised and agent locations in 30 states, Canada, Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom. The financial services store network is the largest network of its kind in each of Canada and the United Kingdom and the second-largest network of its kind in the United States. The Company's customers, many of whom receive income on an irregular basis or from multiple employers, are drawn to the convenient neighborhood locations, extended operating hours and high-quality customer service.
