At a time of year when much of the retail news we hear focuses on receipts and holiday sales performance, I can’t help thinking that the notion of value has become synonymous with price — and only price.

At a time of year when much of the retail news we hear focuses on receipts and holiday sales performance, I can’t help thinking that the notion of value has become synonymous with price — and only price. You can make the argument that price has nearly hijacked the whole definition of value. Why is that, exactly? Should retailers be paying closer and more systematic attention to how they articulate (and how customers perceive) the value of their brand?

Chain Store Age spoke with Michael Hanson, VP sales and marketing for Edison, N.J.-based Star Micronics America — a subsidiary of Star Micronics Company Ltd. and producer of point-of-sale printers for the retail industry — about how retailers can make the most of its point-of-sale printer technology and what they can expect from the devices moving forward.


Receipt printers on point-of-sale systems often bear the brunt of the checkout workload. The units break down, need paper replenishments and suck up energy. Instead of allocating big-budget dollars to install costly new point-of-sale systems all together, many retailers are making small but smart investments in durable, reliable and flexible printers that cut back on energy consumption, make the lines go faster and have a longer shelf life.
