Classic Canes
What to Stock Now

WHAT TO STOCK IN SEPTEMBER 2014
This month's advice for Classic Canes stockists. Trade prices are not shown here, but are available to retailers upon request.

Here we go...from now until Christmas it will be full speed ahead for sales of walking sticks, seat sticks and umbrellas. Many retired people take their holidays now that the children have gone back to school, so be prepared if you are in a tourist area. For other stockists, the arrival of autumn/winter clothes in the shops means your walking sticks need to be in colours and patterns to reflect current trends. Many a walking stick is bought to accessorise a newly purchased outfit. See also Walking Stick Fashions - Autumn/Winter 2014. Country clothing stores should start thinking about their thumbsticks, beating sticks and shooting sticks as the country sports season approaches. Finally, everyone in an inclement climate should have a full stock of ladies', gents' and golf umbrellas in place.
