Another Rhino Cash & Carry recently opened, this one in the Transkei town of Qumbu. It was a “normal” opening with the usual razzmatazz of speeches, a Zulu dancer, music in the parking lot and of course the pushing crowd outside the front door. The store is in a brand new shopping centre and offers locals a cash & carry section, a take away and a liquor store (opening shortly). The store has the usual service departments: grocery, bakery, butchery, deli and fruit & veg, all which offers shoppers quality products at discount prices.
The in-store system is Arch Retail, with SP1000 Touch Screen machines employed at 26 POS points and Partner PT6215 All-in-One machines at the kiosks. Integrated EFT transactions are operational at all till-points. The new store also integrates into Rhino’s head office through Arch Enterprise, our central head office management solution.
