Roots at Thorpe Farm Shop
Roots at Thorpe farm shop run by the Mount family is based on a working farm
in Barkby Thorpe Leicestershire. The Mount family have been farming Thorpe Farm for several generations. The story of Roots began back in 1998... After studying at agricultural college and working overseas son George decided to settle on the farm and help develop the business. Roots opened its doors in October 2008, converting the redundant milking parlour into today's shop, which sells a wide variety of products from fruit and veg, animal feed to butchery and deli items as well. The shop sells a wide variety of butchery and deli items as well. They want to continue to develop and need to gain more time for this which is the reason why they have put in an epos system to hold and manage all the products and prices as well as customers with discounts and delivery details, as well as concentrating on latest expansions such as coffee shop and conference facilities.
Although we were already using Avery scales, the way that this epos system handles normal barcoded lines is more flexible, also allowing for easier use of regular accounts, discounts and promotions, as well as deliveries. The systems fully integrated scales link directly to our epos touch tills, this method allows for particularly quick handling loose products like fruit and vegetables, by picking a button that relates to the goods being purchased, then weighing and pricing - all so simple.
