Wine shops

Perfect every pour while our wine store point of sale takes on purchase orders, inventory management, vendors and more.

Beer stores

The easy-to-use beer store point of sale is made to manage every moving part, from keeping kegs full to running your local beer festival.

Liquor stores

Raise the bar on your customer experience with a liquor store point-of-sale system that speeds up checkout, rewards customers and offers many ways to buy.

Serve up more bottles and keep shelves stocked.

Manage your inventory.

  • Maintain accurate inventory across bottles, cases and kegs.

“Square allows us not only to have multiple stores connected to one parent company platform, but it also allows us to control inventory management, sales reports throughout the entire network and to have a clear view of our stores’ performance in real time.”

– Karl Magnone, president and co-founder, Tite Frette, Montreal, Quebec
