Brisbane Cash and Carry storeBrisbane Cash and Carry  (BCC) was  the first Australian self service grocery store. The Brisbane Courier reported that “The system cash and carry naturally suggests the   paying of cash over the counter, and eliminates the necessity of book debts and bookkeeping in the store, which means a saving to the consumer, and the policy of each customer serving herself, and so eliminating the necessity of sales men effects further saving”.
