It's the weekend - your store or restaurant is packed.  Things are humming along nicely and you're thinking - we are busy, life is good!

Then you get the call - we are out of receipt paper at the register - can you bring us a roll?

You look, you panic - oh man - you forgot to reorder last week after they used that last roll!!!!

But you, being a smart manager/owner - know that you have that emergency supply kit tucked away for times just like these!  Viola!  Crack open the kit, and all is good.

Ok, but for those of you that don't have that emergency supply kit, well.....

So here is our advice.  First of all, make your point of sale supply stock is something you inventory and check stock of on a regular basis.  If you purchase your supplies from us, we can even get you accurate sales history of how much you go through on a regular basis.  Preorder for a couple of months or even a season and take advantage of our quantity discounts!

But the unexpected can still happen.  So, for that reason, we suggest you create an emergency point of sale supply kit that only you or your managers know about and have access to.  Make this a part of your disaster plan!

Here are some suggestions of what to keep in that kit:

You Need to Use This in Your Business - Now!

QR Codes - Yes, you need to start using QR codes for your business, if you haven't already.  

 What is a QR code exactly?  Well, QR stands for Quick Response.  And quick response is what consumers expect these days.  No one wants to type in a link to a website anymore - that is just too much work and they will probably not go to that effort.

But if you provide a QR code  - consumers are way more likely to snap the code and go directly to the site where you want them to order, read a menu, learn more about a product or event, redeem a coupon, or make a payment, etc.

And as we will show you below - QR codes are super easy to create!

Last month we shared that every year around the holidays, the Skurla’s team meets for a day to review the previous year and set a course for “the ship” for the coming year.

 We like to refer to the business as a ship because at Skurla’s, we are an “all hands” type of company, meaning we are all pitching in, doing our part to make sure we are doing the right thing for our company and our customers. It’s an opportunity for the “crew” to be a part of the decision-making process and make sure everyone is “onboard” for the course we’re setting.

Here is Part 2 of the "Heart of Skurla's" -
