We currently run a tuck shop with our scouts. The basic idea is that one of the leaders (generally me!) goes to Hancock's every few weeks to get stock, and then we sell it to the scouts on Friday nights - and of course on camp. The explorer scouts run the shop itself on a friday night.
Our problem is, how do you stop the explorers eating more sweets than they sell? We don't have enough spare leaders to run the shop ourselves!!! Besides - we also eat our way into the profit too!
One option we are looking at is running an EPOS system - in fact i'm already nearly finished building a trail version. This would allow us to monitor how much stock is disappearing, as well as knowing what needs replacing without manually stockchecking. Would anyone else be interested in a copy of this software when it is finished (probably next few days depending on other commitments)
