PWCW on Diamond Retailer Summit

From her vantage point on the floor at this week's Retailer Summit in Baltimore hosted by Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc., PWCW's Heidi MacDonald smartly identifies the biggest story, a potentially industry-changing one in terms of operations within the Direct Market of hobby and comics shops: the availability of a point-of-sale software system endorsed by the distribution giant. It's hard not to want to back any systemic upgrade that can benefit the entire system. It also sounds like cost, not given in the article, will be a huge factor, so much so that it has to cast some doubt that it's going to happen. The piece also includes briefs on who gave presentations to the hundreds of retailers in attendance.
