Vender of the Week: Orchard Street Dispensary

Who: Orchard Street Dispensary

Where: Sydney, Australia

Just under a year ago, Kiwi wunderkind Kirsten Shanks launched her beautiful organic range of cleansing juices on the streets of Sydney. Today she’s selling all kinds of raw delights, vegan treats and naturopath-prescribed goodness from her dispensary store in Bronte. What can we say, she’s a nature goddess!

Why do you love your POS?  We began using Vend when we opened our shopfront, The Orchard St Dispensary. Having this system has been incredibly useful from day one. As such a clear visual is given daily on sales, we have managed to adapt our product lines accordingly. It has been incredibly useful in creating a customer database and maintaining stock levels and an easy ordering system.

Any helping hints for fellow retailers? Don’t let go of your initial vision for the business. We can get so caught up in day to day details that the founding dreams can sometimes slip into the background – but ultimately these visions are the groundwork, the foundations upon which all the rest will grow. Always maintain integrity, honesty and a passion for what you are offering to your community.  – Kirsten Shanks, Founder of Orchard Street Cleanse
