If you live in Galena, located on the north end of the Yukon River, the nearest big supermarket is in Fairbanks, 280 miles away and only accessible by air. The 484 residents there are grateful to have Sweetsir’s Store in town. The grocery and general-merchandise shop has served Galena and its many surrounding villages for decades.
Tracking inventory has always been important to owner Agnes Sweetsir: she needs to keep a close eye on when she needs to reorder products, knowing that weather can often delay arrival by barge or airplane. Her customers depend on her ability to do this.
Sweetsir recently made the jump from cash registers to the Aurora Grocery and Retail System – the one we call “Alaska Tough.” Having invested a lot of time entering data into her old register, she hoped to transfer the information into the new system. She was delighted when our installer made it happen!
