I was in a newsagency last week and noticed that they used computer generated price labels on everything they sold except weekly magazines and small confectionery lines.
In my businesses we only generate labels for non high-volume monthly magazines and what I’d call premium gift lines. Non-premium gift items are priced with a price gun – as long as they have a product barcode.
A premium gift line is something selling at $20.00 or more.
By using a price gun to price items we save time and money. We also make it easier to change price.
The computer system still tracks everything because of the product barcode.
