One Skein, Two Skeins, Three Skeins and More
Today we successfully inventoried the shop for the new register system. Susan wants to make sure we thank all those that helped today. It was a massive job…and we finished it in record time.
We have an ace business consultant, Nancy, working to input all the information into our new “Square” Point of Sale system. Its an Apple powered product that will help us accomplish a lot of things we’ve been wanting to do.
The new streamlined register is in, and we’ve been using it for the past couple weeks. We’ll also have the option during sales to have “mobile registers” walking around the store to help you with your purchases and minimize wait times for the checkout line.
“SAVE A TREE, EMAIL A RECEIPT”
Also a new option is we can text or email your receipts to you from the register or our mobiles.
Coming Soon…A Brand New Look
Dru is working hard to redesign our site. Making it more compliant with Google best practices for mobile devices. We’re moving to a new hosting company, Massive Ant, in Tampa. They specialize in WordPress sites and are working with us to super power the new site. We’ll also be moving our subscription list and self hosting our emails, so now we’ll be able to deliver all the content from our blog to your email boxes based on your request. The goal is to have the site design finished and hosted at its new spot this coming holiday weekend. So, we might have some downtime while we re-point the address. If you try to log on this coming weekend and can’t reach the site; know we’re not down permanently…just in the process of moving.
Nancy is also working with us to finally to set up our online shopping cart, also powered by Square. We are looking to have that up by the end of the summer. She’s a real go-getter and we have no doubt she’ll have us up and online in no time. Be excited….be very very excited. We Are!
