Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 11, 2013
Lou Lou Boutique (http://www.LouLouBoutiques.com) initially launched their 2 shop mini-chain in the DC-area in 2004 and since 2009 has expanded to 14 locations across New England. Lou Lou most recently announced their 15th and 16th store locations opening this summer in Washington, DC on L Street and on 14th Street NW. Working with One Step Retail Solutions (http://www.OneStepRetail.com) since 2012, Lou Lou aimed to create a seamless inventory system to manage their multiple locations for maximized profits and prepare for further expansion.
As this DC retailer rapidly expanded, they found their capabilities were stifled and they needed to have the ability to get a comprehensive overview of their inventory and product movement.
F Street Store Manager, Ruby Szilagi, offers some sage words of advice to her fellow retailers looking to implement a new point of sale system, “…words of wisdom: STICK WITH IT, don’t drop it. One Step is so good at helping you, they are there with you every step of the way day and night.”
When it comes down to functionality and payoff, Ruby says her favorite features in CounterPoint are the hot buttons, cutting down customer’s time at the cash register and minimizing lines. Additionally, as a manager, the ability to drill down into what you have on hand, what is en route and quickly tracking the merchandise has proved to be invaluable.
“Being in one of the city stores we do have a lot of theft, [CounterPoint] is a good way to control that. I recently moved the watches once I found that was a big target. Additionally, I am able to realize exactly what was missing and file a report. It is really helpful for merchandising so you can keep an eye on everything.”
The newest locations will open this summer in the Washington Square building on 1742 L Street and 14th Street NW, in the heart of the U Street corridor.
