POINT OF SALE SYSTEM (POS) INSTALLATION


The Club has introduced a POS cash register system in all bars, function rooms and food outlets.

The system provides a streamlined approach to customer service whilst providing crucial information for stock control and cash flow.

In addition implementation of this system also allows the Club to provide discounts on beverages to financial members on presentation of their membership card. Simply scan your card at the outlet to receive the member’s discount.

The system is a much more efficient and will deliver quicker service for the customer. For the first few race meetings staff are training on the system and therefore it would be appreciated if you would be considerate during the training period.

BAR PRICES INCREASE

A review of bar prices has been conducted. Wine prices have not increased since 2013 following the changeover to Treasury Wine Estate.

In the past three years the Club has absorbed cost price increases for wine and beer but now must deliver a price increase to the consumer.

Bar prices will be displayed at all bar outlets and the bar prices are attached to this document.

Members should deduct their discount for the actual member price.
