Antique Store Point of Sale

Antique stores make money from selling antiques purchased from auctions, dealers and individuals. Product cost and prices can range greatly considering the age, condition, rarity, and collectability of an item. Antique businesses can range in size from temporary pop-ups at flea markets, very small storefronts all the way up to large warehouse stores with thousands of items. Antique stores compete against larger general retailers by offering an extensive range of products, unique and hard to find merchandise and high levels of service and expertise focused specifically on the needs of antique dealers and antique buyers.
