Along America’s Gulf Coast, from Gulf Shores, Ala., to Layfayette, La., you will find locations for regional supermarket chain, Rouses Food Market. From its beginnings, Rouses has prided itself on providing customers with local fare such as Louisiana grass-fed beef, Chappapeela pork, Mississippi Lamb, Boudin and Andouille sausages, and locally grown fruits and vegetables. With more than 50 stores in three states, Rouses shares the best consumer goods from each local community with its customers throughout Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi.
In 2009, Rouses made a decision to upgrade its deli, seafood, and meat departments. The project included the purchase of new scales for its point-of-sale (POS) system. Rouses management was clear on its scale requirements: durability and easy to clean, coupled with an instrument capable of interfacing with the company’s POS software via a serial connection.
