The Pantry to Offer Western Union goCASH Service
"Our services continue to gain momentum with consumers," said Victoria Lopez-Negrete, Western Union's senior vice president and GM North America. "Western Union sees the goCASH service as an opportunity to strengthen its relationship and value proposition with consumers seeking convenient services and mass-market retailers preferring to efficiently manage services at the checkout counter."
The goCASH service lets customers select one of three principal amounts -- $50, $100 or $200 -- for a domestic or global money transfer. After making the purchase, the sender must complete the transaction online or over the phone through a Western Union customer service representative, providing the money-transfer information to the receiver.
"Kangaroo Express stores offer a broad selection of merchandise, as well as gasoline and other ancillary services designed to appeal to the convenience needs of its guests," said John Fisher, The Pantry's senior vice president of marketing. "Adding the Western Union goCASH money transfer service, available at the counter, provides another time-saving option for our store guests."
GoCASH will be available at Kangaroo Express stores starting this fall, according to the announcement.
