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.
Skurla’s is once again proud to be a sponsor of the annual Rural Small Business Conference is next week on February 10-11, 2021. For the first time, you can enjoy the conference virtually from the safety of your community.

More than ever, consumers are using online ordering/delivery/pickup services to buy their groceries.
And now that they are used to the convenience and ease of ordering, grocery delivery services are here to stay. It's fast, easy and customers are often willing to pay more for this service.
According to a recent article from Business Insider:
I recently found this in the Mettler Toledo Scale Newletter:
"Metrology is the science of measurement, and the scientific tool at the heart of every service counter transaction is the weighing scale."
The members of the National Grocers' Association have shared a list of their tips.
NGA has compiled the following list of common practices that members have shared with others. Remember, communication with your customers and employees is paramount.
What is eWIC (from the State of Alaska):
"Our WIC program is moving from checks to an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card we're calling "eWIC." The new eWIC card looks like a debit card and has all of your family’s WIC benefits in one place."
- It's Fast
- Saves time at checkout!
- It's Flexible
- Buy as little or as much of your WIC food at a time!
- It's Simple
- No more paper checks!
Now with eWIC integrated right into the store's POS, it will be easier and more discreet for families to shop. No more separating WIC items at checkout and paying with a paper check.
Watch the video below to see how fast and easy it is to process WIC transactions with integrated eWIC.
At this year’s Rural Small Business Conference (February 11th-13th), we will be showing off our new Skurla’s Grocery Point of Sale system! In addition, we’ll also be demonstrating its built-in eWIC integration – a first for our systems and one of a few certified to work in the State of Alaska.We’ll have a demo system setup so you can see exactly how it works. Our software partner for our POS, Auto-Star, will also be in attendance to be able to answer any questions you may have on the software.
