POS system software for Bottle Stores
Bottle Stores overview
Bottle shops are similar to many other retail businesses, however, they usually run a lot of different promotions on similar products, with some being controlled through distributer databases.
One of the advantages of bottle shops is that everything is usually sent from the supplier with its own barcode. This makes it very easy to sell and to stocktake. You can also create shelf labels to display the barcode to help when you perform a stocktake.
Coupons and gift vouchers are also a great way to expand your sales through bottle shops. If you can offer a way for your customers to be enticed back to your store, you will generally be able to convert them to be a regular.
