INDUSTRY NOTES

September 12, 1985

Irvine-based CompuSave Corp. said Wednesday that it has entered into an agreement for its Touch-n-Save electronic shopping machine to be test marketed by Circle K Corp., a chain of convenience food stores, at 29 locations in the South.

CompuSave officials said Circle K will get a royalty from any sales made on the video machines, which they said allow shoppers to order from an array of 2,800 brand-name items--such as televisions, stereos, sporting goods and housewares--at prices from 25% to 50% below retail.

They added that other purchasers of the Touch-n-Save system include Southland Corp., A&P, Publix Supermarkets, Safeway Stores Inc., and Kroger Co.
