Keep your store bustling during the holidays with these last-minute sales tips.
At this time of year, we see Christmas cheer in every window. Well, we will be seeing it once Halloween is over. Hardware and retail stores are under a lot of pressure to keep a hold on customer interest.
Imagine this: The holidays have arrived, and you’ve been taking every available step to keep your customers interested in your store. You put up snowflake decorations and colored lights in mid-November. You had a snowmen family painted on your front window. You even promoted the heck out of your Black Friday Sale.
How do you regain the momentum and excitement of early holiday shopping and keep it going all the way up through Christmas Eve? And more importantly, how do you get rid of all those icicle lights and inflatable reindeer?
A point of sale system allows you track purchases, analyze inventory levels for each item, monitor customer purchases, and calculate when you need to order stock. Or, it should.
Point of sale systems are supposed to offer flexibility, convenience, and organization to your store and inventory. With a point of sale you track trends, generate data, and maintain a sales history without extra work – or so many point of sale vendors say.
For some store owners, however, point of sale systems deliver difficulties instead of value. The biggest frustrations include:
- High or hidden expenses
- Complex inventory control
- Poor customer service
- Complicated procedures and systems
Paladin Data Corp has identified these common challenges, and we change the struggles into advantages. We address each frustration and keep your store profitable by keeping it all simple. We’re here to help you grow—if you succeed, we succeed. Continue reading
