What Our Customers Think

I have appreciated all the work you put into trying to fulfill my requests. You kept in touch with me for almost a year until I was ready for my system.  You explained everything I was going to receive and the program and work station has fulfilled all of our needs. Customer Service people were a great help, every time I called they were more than happy to help me.  Over all I am very glad I bought my workstation from The General Store.

I am extremely happy with your product.  I know when I was in the process of buying a pos system it was really confusing and there were a lot of other systems to chose from.  I am so lucky in finding TGS .  You took the time in answering my questions and concerns. Tech support did a great job getting me up and running, and any problems were taken care of  immediately.  Your customer service is GREAT and the software is really easy to use I figured it out within a few days.  I had no idea what I was doing, but between the tech support ,the manual,  the DVD’s,  and you it was really easy.  I give TGS two thumbs up.

I wanted to thank specifically Brad Moore, sales representative for all of his hard work with the sale itself.  He was extremely informative with every aspect of the goods being delivered. Thank you and I look forward to working with your company in the future.

As a new start up retailer, with several thousand sku’s to deal with, I had no idea how much help I would require getting my network, and multiple points of sale, set up and running. There were days that I  called your tech support eight or nine times, and rarely did I have to wait more than a minute or two to get into one of your most excellent support specialist.   I would tell any retailer that quick access to quality tech support, is the most important consideration as you are deciding on a POS system. The General Store’s delivery on that vital component scores a 10, on a 10 scale! Thanks!
