For most thrift/dollar store retailers, inventory management can be a fairly routine procedure. When orders come in, items are scanned and placed on shelves. When items are purchased, they're scanned out and updated in the system. This is not the case for thrift, consignment, and dollar stores. These stores require a thrift store point of sale system that truly accomodates their unique retailing business. Fortunately, CounterPoint Retail POS Software has the flexibility to handle both "traditional buys" of barcoded merchandise as well as mixed lots from donations and/or jobber buys. Our dollar store pos or thrift store pos solutions allows you to color code merchandise and mark down by color code. This allows you to keep inventory turning so that customers see something new everytime they visit.
