RITE Acquires Microsoft Partner Retail Technology Experts

Federal Judge Halts Implementation
of New Overtime Regulations 

"Providing some relief to retailers and small business owners, Federal District Judge Amos L. Mazzant III of the Eastern District of Texas has issued a nationwide injunction against the expansion of the new overtime regulations created by the Obama administration. 

Retailers Ready And Waiting For Credit Cards
To Catch Up With EMV Capabilities
It seems that retailers are not the ones holding up the transition to EMV, at least not completely. A new  National Retail Foundation Survey has found that among retailers that have yet to support EMV chip-enabled credit and debit card payments, 57 percent reported that they already installed the necessary equipment, but were still waiting for certification by the card networks.

How Retailers Can Compete With Amazon 
For Holiday Shopping Dollars
 With Black Friday already behind us, the Holiday shopping season is in full swing. This year, a new report finds, almost half of consumers (46 percent) will use Amazon for their holiday shopping needs, and 43 percent will buy half their gifts from the online giant. The good news is that retailers can still compete with Amazon: consumers will buy elsewhere due to better prices (65 percent), special offers (46 percent), and similar or faster delivery times (29 percent).  Easier access to store inventory (23 percent) and exclusive or unique products (22 percent) can also help draw customers to physical stores.

  1. Not using our store name as we have been long term customer. These guys are inept. Final straw was the cloud pos system going down twice for several hours.
