CHICAGO -- General Growth Properties is deploying GiftWise gift card vending kiosks at its 100 of its shopping malls in time for the holiday shopping season.

The kiosks, manufactured by Middletown, RI-based Self-Service Networks, come in indoor and outdoor models that allow mall visitors to buy gift cards around the clock. They can also capture customer information, dispense coupons and display advertising.

Founded in 1996 by Thomas Smith, Self-Service Networks, formerly MontegoNet, regards itself as a pioneer in the interactive kiosk and self-service industry.

General Growth Properties, headquartered here, owns or has interest in 169 regional shopping malls in 43 states. The GGP portfolio totals roughly 200 million square feet of retail space and more than 24,000 stores. The 50-year-old real estate company emerged from bankruptcy a year ago after enormous debt pressures in 2008 forced it to seek Chapter 11 protection.
