The book market in Odessa is a popular place for tourists to visit and one of the most crowded places of retail trade. In the 1990s, books brought from Kiev, Minsk, Kharkov and St. Petersburg were sold here.
According to the stories of local entrepreneurs, they built a business by their own trial and error. There were no coaches or other modern specialists. I had to independently set a pricing policy, choose books for an assortment that customers would like.
“When we started, there were no mobile phones, no Internet, no laptops – everything had to be stored in the head. Most of the time was spent on trips for goods”” the merchants say.
In addition to books, vinyl records, audio and video media, computer games, all kinds of sweets, imported goods, for example, olive oil, appeared on the market. In parallel, there were outlets with coffee, snacks and desserts for visitors and employees of the Book.
On the other hand, new competitors in the form of online stores were pressing. A modern solution was needed to optimize the retail business. It became the SmarTone cash register, which includes a printer, a scanner, a fiscal registrar, a laptop computer and a bank terminal. SmarTone solves all business problems.
