Retail, Calculating, Or Certified Scales, Which is it?

The scales that we usually talk about each month can be referred to as quite a few different names. Some folks call them retail scales while others prefer to say they are scales for computing the price per pound. Others like to say they are calculating scales or certified legal for trade. We generally just call them price computing scales.  These products work great at places like fudge shops, candy stores, frozen yogurt stores and farmers markets because the operation of the products is pretty simple.

You basically place the item on the scale, enter the price per pound that you wish to charge your customer, and the scale computes the price per pound on both the front display and the back display. This is great because both the farmer or the candy shop owner can see the price and the customer buying the apples or the cup of butter pecan frozen yogurt can see how much they owe. Speaking of yogurt we also should mention that some of the scales can compute price per ounce which is especially useful for sellers looking to charge patrons by the ounce.

We all like fresh produce, but how can we keep it fresh longer? “How you store fruits and vegetables will impact how fresh your produce will stay,” says Erin Palinski, RD, a registered dietitian in private practice in northern New Jersey. Below are some food storage tips for common fruits and vegetables from Everyday Health.  Click the Everyday Health link to read the entire article.
