Retail tills and cash registers

What aspect of your shop equipment gets the most use each day? Certainly your shelving and your counter, but your cash register gets the most action (or at least we hope it does if you're doing regular business!) - so when did you last update your till?

Having top quality shop shelving is something that every retail store should make a priority, and keeping your store neat and tidy gives a great impression, but even more important than that is a fast-functioning, reliable, long-lasting cash register. If your till breaks down, can't cope with credit and debit cards, or takes an age to function, your staff and customers will get irritated and you may lose custom. At Shelving4Shops we offer a range of high quality electronic cash registers by Sharp to make sure your store runs smoothly at all times.

Sharp XE-A107

The XE-A107WH Sharp cash register is a compact machine that fits well in most retail situations. It includes hard-wearing, colour-coded soft-touch keys and a clear and bright LED display. A lockable cash drawer ensures your shop is safe if you have to step away from the counter for a moment, and VAT/TAX rate and currency exchange facilities help to make business easy. This model comes in black or white to suit the rest of your store interior.

Sharp XE-A137WH Cash Register

We also stock the Sharp XE-A137WH electronic till in white or black with silent printing and a 9 digit, 7 segment LED operator display. This model is perfect for keeping your accounts in order as it offers a 3,000 line electronic journal to provide you with a full audit trail, and is compatible with SD card storage so that you can view your data on your PC.

Shape EX- A207W

And for growing businesses, the XE-A207 Sharp electronic cash register is a great professional machine with a multi-line operator display and full-sized lockable cash drawer. Choose from light grey or black to match your shop style and get set up easily and quickly to use your machine straight away. Make use of the PC Link software programme to keep on top of product maintenance as well as the data export function which allows you to save sales data to a spreadsheet on your computer.

For a huge range of retail store and shelving accessories along with shop shelving and refrigerated shelving units please get in touch with us at Shelving4Shops and we can help you to plan and fit out your store according to your needs.

  • Counter-top coolers
  • Multidecks
  • Ice cream freezers
  • Refrigerated wall displays
  • Glass door fridges and freezers
  • Under counter fridges and freezers

Incorporating chillers, freezers and refrigerated shelving units into your store layout means you can stock a wider range of products, including fresh, chilled and frozen goods. This is great for appealing to customers who are looking for a cooled drink or some fresh milk, an ice cream on a hot day or a chilled bottle of white wine on a Friday night. If you can fit a retail chiller into your store you can boost your sales and make your store an essential part of your customers' commute, school run or weekend.

Gondola units leading a run of wall bays 

In the last six months alone we have employed a new member to the team, moved offices, built a brand new showroom, introduced new stock such as cash registers, wire vegetable racking, mirrored canopies, wall fixed uprights, shop counters and gondola gable ends to name but a few!
New gable ends fitted on to an end bay
Second hand shop racking is still a large part of the business, and we are always happy to advise and quote on second hand shop shelving and accessories. Second hand shop shelving is a practical and economical way to set up a business or replace old units. Of course if we don’t have the sizes you need in second hand you can always buy new and if you need to mix and match new with old shelving and accessories we can do that too! Get in touch and let us help you to save you money wherever possible.

In our new shop shelving ranges we have sizes to fit every shop from large supermarkets with our 2.4m high wall shelving with a 570mm base shelf to a very small corner shop from our 1.8m high wall shelving with a 300mm base shelf. We have an excellent range of wall and gondola shelving and combined with our accessories of shopping baskets, dump bins, stacking baskets and tiered baskets there really is no need to visit anywhere else.
