Old vs New Retailers

Sometimes, I wonder if we're becoming too dependent on computers. However, we cannot deny that computerization has made a lot of things much easier. Well, some retail outlets still use the traditional way of retailing stuff, which is ok for such a small setting. In a palengke (wet market), the tinderas (salesladies) simply tell the customer how much the item is, they haggle and reach a price acceptable to both, then money is turned over and the change given. Sometimes the tindera just writes down the sale in her notebook. But this would not work with high volume retailers like supermarkets. In such setups a good point of sale device which includes an epson tm-t88iv printer to print out the receipts would make the whole process smoother and easier for everybody concerned.
