Thrupps Grocers… powered by EasiPos &


Thrupps, "grocers of distinction" is the oldest store in Johannesburg at 119 years, serving its elite customers in the same friendly & professional manner as it did over a century ago.


Established in 1892 on the corner of Eloff and President Streets by Charles Thrupp, the store is considered to be the micro “Harrods” of South Africa. A high percentage of its sales are on account – all of which are handled by EasiPos and in “real-time”.


In addition, Thrupps provides an e-commerce website where customers (debtors in procure) can view their account details, make payments and shop on-line. provides integration between the web based ordering system and the automated order generation & supplier price negotiations module via an electronic “Bid sheet”.


Claims are automatically generated by in the event of any delivery vs. negotiated supplier prices discrepancies. Once delivered, these orders are combined and picked in the Warehouse and delivered directly to the customer. Debtor statements are automatically e-mailed to the customers for online settlement which then reflects back to the debtor balances in
