Should be pretty standard...

Taxing may/may not be an issue at the POS.

A lot depends on the state, Ohio for instance had some specific reporting
requirements, at least back in the mid 90's when I worked for a POS dealer.

I built an interface between the Electronic Cash Registers we sold and
Ohio's reporting software.

Our owner is contemplating the purchase of a liquor store. For reference,
we are currently a chain of ~ 25 retail convenience stores selling beer,

My only experience with liquor stores is my weekly visit to restock my
Gentleman Jack. I did have a colleague (now deceased) who was the network
guy for a liquor distributor. The brief discussions with that colleague
mainly centered on how regulated the industry was. Cigarettes and beer
also, regulated but not to that extent.

I am doing a preliminary search for software targeted at liquor retail. We
have a point-of-sales system that our executive V-P thinks could be used to
record sales and pass that on to our System i. Maybe, maybe not. Anyway,
am trying to find software that would, preferably, run on the System i

Failing that we would accept something that runs on Windows, Mac iOS, or

I have searched but my keywords may be too convoluted for Google. The back
office functions (Payables, Recv., G/L, etc.) should, I think, be pretty
much the same as any retail operations, but I may be wrong (it's happened).
Anyone have any knowledge or suggestions regarding retail liquor store
