Who are we?

Open Retail Solutions have been trading since 2003.

Our development direction is driven by our customers, with close working relationships we are always at the forefront of retail change and listen to our customers’ requirements.

From the quality of the equipment we use, to the way we deal with your customers onsite, we remain committed to the highest standards of operation.

We are aiming to provide a great product, with superlative customer service, and our users would agree we are delivering on that aim.

Once you are a customer, you can expect a fruitful working collaboration. We are always open to suggestions and customisation that benefits the whole user base.

Getting the most out our EPoS system is our aim for you, through training and ongoing support.

Any improvements and updates to our system, you get for free as part of the support contract.

Support and customer service are very important to us and is the area our customers are always most happy about.

What makes us different?

As we supply our solution to sectors of retail other than Farm Shops, we can bring knowledge and expertise from these sectors and apply this knowledge to the Farm Shop sector. This has proved invaluable to our current farm shop customer base.

Although it is a cliché, we really do excel at customer service. We bend over backwards to try and help our customers, and with our 7 days a week including bank holidays 8am to 8pm trading support, we are always on hand during trading hours to make sure you are able to trade if any issues arise.

Also, with our support, you get straight through to someone who can deal with your query, we have no first, second and third line support, just knowledgeable people answering the phone to deal with your queries.

We are also a friendly bunch who speak in plain English. No hard selling, no technical jargon, just good people looking to help people improve their businesses.

Where do you cover?

England, Scotland, Wales and the Channel Islands.


“Open Retail installed our EPOS system and software in April 2019, customer service both before and after sales has been brilliant – any issues we have had with the till have been dealt with promptly and efficiently, with minimal disruption to service. All the staff we have dealt with in person or on the phone, including during training, have been friendly and knowledgeable and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the company.”

Emma Smith, Director @ The Heron Farm Shop

“We work closely with Open Retail on improvements to our system. As they write their own software, they are able to respond quickly to our requirements and ensure that it works for us”

George Mount, Director @ Roots at Thorpe Farm Shop

“Over the past 5 years our turnover has increased by 85%. We attribute that to using Open Retails software to its fullest”
