 A very overdue welcome to liquor stores in the following cities and states that recently worked with me to put in the Cloud Retailer point of sale software for liquor stores:

  • Ocean Shores, WA
  • Fort Worth, TX
  • Tulsa, OK 
  • Mountain Home, AR

I appreciate all of you!

The End of Microsoft Dynamics RMS Is Official!

 As of today, July 12, 2021, Microsoft has ended all support for the Dynamics RMS Store Operations point of sale software. If you are still using RMS, you are on borrowed time. You need to be looking at either Retail Management Hero or Cloud Retailer.

Given the ending of support from Microsoft, my ability to support RMS will be quite limited and only offered on a case by case basis to retailers in the United States.

Ethnic Disconnect in The Liquor Store Industry

 So - one thing that I have noticed over the years is that around 70% of the liquor stores I have been in over the last several years are owned by someone who is not Caucasian. However, when I attend various industry events, 70% of the attendees are Caucasian. 

If you are an owner or manager of a beer, wine or liquor store and are of Asian, Latino, or Middle Eastern descent, I'd enjoy learning why you don't attend industry events like trade shows, conferences, and expos.

The goal here is to make sure these industry events offer something that makes you want to attend.
