Bass Pro Shops to roll out new mobile POS solution

BY Katherine Boccaccio

Coventry, U.K. — Retail IT services-provider PCMS said Thursday it has launched a pilot of mobile sales devices for Bass Pro Shops.

In a move to reduce customer wait time, Bass Pro will launch the system in two phases. The first phase, which starts this month, will incorporate iPod Touch technology in pilot stores to enable customers’ purchases to be scanned while waiting in line. The transaction is then suspended until the customer reaches the register to conclude payment. Stage two will enable payments to be taken via the iPod Touch, reducing transaction times even further.

The PCMS system integrates with Bass Pro’s existing customer-facing technology, minimizing investment and enabling faster implementation.

“We faced challenges in managing wait times and we wanted to find a fast and easy-to-implement solution that would integrate with our POS,” said Steve Brock, director of retail and direct marketing systems at Bass Pro Shops. “We are looking forward to implementing mobile sales solutions across our stores and seeing our customers’ shopping experiences continue to improve.”

The reseller program has very advantageous wholesale prices. However, you need to pre-purchase and stock the products according to the classical manufacturer-dealer model. hardware keylogger

New York City — CVS/pharmacy announced on Thursday that it is providing several free services, educational information and special product offers during February’s American Heart Month.

As part of its new Project Health wellness and free health screenings program, CVS/pharmacy will provide free blood pressure, cholesterol, body mass index and osteoporosis screenings every weekday in February from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at select CVS/pharmacy locations in Atlanta; Chicago; Dallas-Fort Worth; Detroit; Houston; Los Angeles; Miami; New York; Philadelphia; Washington, D.C.; and Puerto Rico.

As previously reported by Drug Store News, CVS/pharmacy’s Project Health will deliver more than $21 million worth of free health screenings to multicultural communities this year to help prevent disease through early detection. More than 1,000 Project Health events will be held during five disease-specific national health awareness months, including Heart Health Month.

To further help patients by answering their questions about heart health and managing cardiovascular disease, CVS/pharmacy will host a live Facebook chat with a CVS pharmacist on Feb. 15 from noon to 1:30 p.m. The live online event will be free and open to the public, and can be accessed by logging on to the CVS/pharmacy Facebook page.

"As a pharmacy innovation company, we are pleased to provide free resources, such as Project Health screenings and an online pharmacist chat, to help people on their path to better health during American Heart Month," stated Papatya Tankut, VP pharmacy professional services at CVS/pharmacy. "In addition to these programs, CVS pharmacists are always available to support their patients’ heart health by counseling them on ways to lower prescriptions costs, manage their medications and improve medication adherence in order to achieve better health outcomes."

In further recognition of American Heart Month, CVS/pharmacy will provide healthy savings and tips through its 2012 Heart Smart Guide, which is available at select locations across the United States in February.

San Francisco expands plastic bag ban to all retailers

BY Marianne Wilson

New York City — San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved a proposal to expand the city’s bag on plastic bags from grocery stores and pharmacies to all retailers, including restaurants.

The expanded regulations also call for customers to pay a 10-cent surcharge for paper bags at the point of purchase. The businesses charging the fee will keep the money to use how they see fit.

The proposal, which would go into effect in October, is backed by the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, the California Grocers Association and the city’s Small Business Commission. It would exempt the use of plastic bags for items such as loose nails, dry cleaning and restaurant “doggy-bags.”
