Cash Register ect

We are in our second year of operations as a food vendor at various events. This year we got accepted to a county fair and we are really excited as it will be our biggest event to date. My question is, we have to have a cash register that has a Z function and provide tape at the end of each day to the fair. There are tons out there. I dont want to spend a ton of money since this is so far our only fair this year. Any suggestions on what to look for in a register? Thanks!

    Chef, looked into a new event coming down here in our region of the woods. 10 x 10 space, $100.00; plus,  everything is purchased with tickets, promoters gets 20%, if caught taking cash selling food, they take 35%, PLUS now get this, they also take out whatever is needed to pay your city and state sales tax. I`ll be out of town the weekend this happens, but I`d love to go there and see what fools signed up for this one.

    Costco has some pretty reasonably priced cash registers if you decide to go new.  Here in Nova Scotia I had checked into the event fees.  I believe they take 10% and from that your site fee is deducted.  Also, it is a "honor system", most everyone has a portable cash box.  But then where I live, people sell fruit, vegetables, eggs, firewood etc on the side of the road with the cash tin or jar right there!

    try staples they had a sharp forget the model but they offer register rewards on many items so u can get some of your money back and they also have coupons online sometimes for 10-20 off a 60-100 dollar purchase.
    Example: I bought 2 packs of batteries ( 1 AAA, 1 AA for 10.99 each ) used 2- 2.00 off coupons paid 18.00 plus tax, got the register reward for 22.00 back then bought a XEA- 106 they had on sale for 99.00 and offered a 50.00 rewards I also had a coupon for 20.00 off a purchase of 100.00 so.....
    I paid 99.00-20.00 coupon-22.00 previous reward=55.00 then got my 50.00 register reward back later so it only cost me 5.00 in the end for the register...which I may not even use but can't pass up a deal......staples also has deals online with free shipping as well if not near you.
