Toronto, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) April 29, 2014
You can't spell Alberta without an A - and an A is exactly what the province has earned in retail sales for this February. According to a study by Statistics Canada, Alberta has reached a record level of sales for February, making almost $6.5 billion and increasing earnings by 8.3 percent from February of last year. What has led to the success? Experts say that Alberta made headway through general merchandise stores, which is especially impressive given the harsh weather experienced just months ago.
That’s great news for retailers in the region, but what about the rest of Canada? While it is true that Alberta leads the pack, the rest of Canada is not far behind, with sales across the country increasing by 3.7 percent and topping off at $41 billion. For retailers hoping to edge out their competitors during this boon, contactless payment systems are one option. Super-quick POS terminals, such as MONEXgroup’s Vx 810 Duet, are being employed by businesses across Canada in order to help reduce long wait times for customers in lines.
