News from Tower Systems about locally made POS software for specialty local retailers.

POS software and Shopify websites made for local fishing, camping and firearms businesses


Tower Systems is grateful for the opportunity to provide POS software for firearms dealers as well as fishing and outdoors businesses. We are equally grateful to create POS software integrated Shopify websites for these businesses, to help them sell in-store as well as online.

One recent Shopify website we created is for H. Rehfisch & Co – a fishing, firearms and outdoors shop in Ballarat, Victoria.

On the website we created for them you can see products managed by our POS from product details to images. Our web team worked with them to bring this online sales opportunity to life, which is complex because of rules from Shopify and payment gateways for businesses authorised to sell firearms.

Our process was to take it step by step, to meet the regulatory requirements, so that this loved local fishing, outdoors and firearms business could reach more customers through their online presence.

We are truly grateful for the opportunity to help them with this, to help the Rehfisch business in Ballarat to reach more customers in more locations than they could reach from their physical store alone. Theirs is a business with a history:

H Rehfisch was established in 1860 serving the Ballarat and surrounding areas as a Leather Merchant. Our trade began to transition from leather goods and hides to firearms and fishing in the early 1900’s. The last five years has seen H Rehfisch & Co farewell the little shop that housed their trading for over 100 years to embrace a purpose built building. Ron Rehfisch handed the reigns over to his son, Guy Rehfisch, in 2006 who is now 5th generation owner.

Tower Systems is honoured to serve this family business, to help them find more shoppers and to transact efficiently and accurately.

Using our software, local small business retailers can:

  • Sell accurately by weight or measure – by whole numbers or fractions.
  • Leverage you. If your knowledge is a differentiator, offer it through structured opportunities in the software.
  • Easier record keeping with serial number tracking of items sold.
  • Ensure compliance with structured age checking.
  • Easily handle special customer orders. Bring product in for a specific customer and have them notified automatically by email or text when the goods are in and ready.
