Rental chain Tsutaya plans to let customers return rented DVDs and CDs by post, officials from its head company said Saturday.

The development is expected to make its service more convenient for seniors and those in rural areas, owner Culture Convenience Club Co. said. The service will be offered at about 170 shops in three areas — Hokkaido and Kyushu from Sunday, and Okinawa from mid-November. The service will then gradually be extended to the rest of the country, they said.
