2013 is off to a stellar start for ShopKeep POS merchants after they experienced a 17% increase in total sales this January over same store sales from last year. Specialty food stores led the way with an increase of 45%, followed by quick serve restaurants at 31% and coffee shops at 23%.
And the better news is that it’s not just ShopKeep POS merchants experiencing this growth. The Wall Street Journal reported last week that same store sales growth across retail was strong in January too, with Macy’s and Kohl’s leading the charge at 12% and 13% growth respectively.
