Thurgoona newsagency opened with much fanfare. Here is the newspaper report from the Border mail.
It is a superb bright fresh modern shop and as the newspaper article states it was immediately swamped with many people wanting a look ad we were delighted when the newsagent decided to put our system into this new shop.
The opening day was busy and our POS system performed efficiently. It has full integration with tyro eftpos and touch provides for secure functionality at the checkouts. It showed that an advanced point-of-sale with a state of the art dual checkout lane makes for better customer service linked into a back-office system.
In the industry, it is creating a wave as GNS, there are really putting into a massive effort in creating a model stationery display which when finished will be about 27.5 meters of stationery, two meters high. Here is a planogram of this new shop with the stationery marked in blue.
As a sign of the times, you can see that magazines have much less space than stationery.
