This month is a wonderful time to take out your old faithful digital scale and give it a good work out. Plug it in and make sure it powers up and charges if it has a battery. It might even be a good idea to order a spare battery to prepare for the spring.
Make sure all the buttons on the keypad work. This is especially important if you type in prices per pound using the number keys. Make sure the displays work on both front and back so that you and your customer are not “in the dark”.
Finally, take a look at the selection of Brecknell PC series scales currently available this winter from the sales team over at Central Carolina Scale. You may find a deal too good to pass on. Plus, you can always use a good backup unit or add a second scale to your produce stand so that your customers are able to purchase produce from you as fast as ever.
We’ve mentioned it before but we will say it again… the highest quality at the lowest price is the Brecknell product line. When you see the brand Brecknell you know it’s a name you can trust. What will surprise you is the remarkably affordable price.
