Total Merchant Supply expands, holds grand reopening

Total Merchant Supply, a store that supplies other stores in Charlotte, is holding a grand reopening party next week to celebrate its recent 1,000-square foot-expansion.

The company, which opened in 2003, sells and services point-of-sale systems and software  to local businesses (think cash registers, credit card swiping terminals, touchscreen checkout devices and the like). Total Merchant Supply has outfitted about 1,000 Charlotte-area businesses with their point-of-sale-systems, the store's management said.

“The old store just one storefront away was getting cramped,” managing partner Dwane Walton said in an email. “When this space opened up early last winter we saw that it offered the ability to increase our showroom, office and tech space to meet the increasing needs of our business without changing our basic address.”

Total Merchant Supply is now also selling more advanced devices than standard cash registers, such as iPad- and cloud-based point-of-sale systems.

The grand reopening will be from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on August 22 and 23, at the store on South Boulevard. Company representatives will be on hand demonstrating various point-of-sale systems, the store's management said, and retail and restaurant owners are invited to attend. Door prizes, food and refreshments will be at the event.
