General Retail


Retail is the sale of goods and services from individuals or businesses to the end-user. Retailers are part of an integrated system called the supply chain. A retailer purchases goods or products in large quantities from manufacturers directly or through a wholesale, and then sells smaller quantities to the consumer for a profit. Retailing can be done in either fixed locations like stores or markets, door-to-door or by delivery. Retailing includes subordinated services, such as delivery. The term "retailer" is also applied where a service provider services the needs of a large number of individuals, such as for the public. Shops may be on residential streets, streets with few or no houses or in a shopping mall.

B.C. Moore originally purchased REF Retails Systems POS software to run on an NCR 7058 platform in 1992. Dave Mears was very involved in the original development and support of our custom REF software. We were always pleased and impressed with Dave's work.

After REF sold their operations to Premis Systems Canada, we acquired our source code from Premis in 1998. We contacted Dave, at that time, to support our application and perform necessary Y2K work.

Over the years, we have established an ongoing trust with MRS in their retail knowledge, quality software releases and timely software updates. Their customer commitment is shown time and again with the work they have performed for us.

Thanks Millenium for the excellent work!
