Touching the waters of Bristol Bay is the Native Village of Kwigillingok. Kwik Store Inc., in Kwigillingok is the sole grocer provider to all residents. Skurla's recently did a new install that was ten years in the making for Kwik Store. Our Service Manager, Jesse, flew to Kwigillingok to provide Auto-Star point of sale to Kwik Store. Fulfilling our promise to install and provide proper training for businesses to fully utilize their new system.
Our team at Skurla's wants to congratulate our friends at Mekong Market for the opening of their second location in Anchorage! This phenomenal market is located at the Bering Village in midtown Anchorage. This market will meet all your needs for Asian and Pacific Island specialty grocery items, but you cannot complete any grocery trip without grabbing a bite to eat from their hot bar. A personal go to for us.
Mekong Market needed a POS that could be multi-functional to handle retail, grocery, and hot bar purchases. Skurla's Grocery system powered by Auto-Star was the perfect fit. We were able to integrate credit card processing and EBT transactions to be an all in one transaction. Our favorite POS systems are always modern, easily accessible, and cost effective for our customers, which is why we love Auto-Star. Mekong Market signed up for our PAS (Point of Sale as a Service) program. With one monthly fee they have an all- inclusive point of sale that comes with hardware, software, and in person support from our team at Skurla's. Utilizing PAS you will never have to stress over your point of sale, we are with you every step of the way. The Skurla's guarantee. Head over to Mekong Market to see our POS in action and try their delicious food!

The 5 Questions on Inventory
(or why is it such mystery how to manage inventory effectively?)
Hello Alaskans! Another winter is coming, and we’ve had another year of pandemic under our belts. For those in the retail and grocery realm, maybe you’ve had a chance to regroup and strategize about what you can do to do improve. I suspect that the word “inventory” has come up a lot - if so you’re not alone. Retailers across the board have had inventory issues since 2020, and while it’s gotten better in some ways, but it continues to be an issue.
We wanted to share this special report from Supermarket News how five key product categories - produce, meat, deli, bakery, frozen foods - have been transformed and what trends are shaping their futures.
The point of sale (POS) and back office management system is a vital tool for growing your business. But without the right capabilities, you may not see the return you were hoping. Use these guides as a resource for making a smart investment in POS software specifically designed for pharmacy, grocery, and health and natural products retailers.
