What to Stock Now

WHAT TO STOCK IN SEPTEMBER 2015
Current advice for Classic Canes stockists. Trade prices are not shown here, but are available to retailers upon request. Follow us on Facebook for other updates.

September fires the starting gun on the new season's fashions and accessories. Many a walking stick is bought to accessorise a new sartorial purchase, so retailers should ensure their displays are full to bursting of tempting walking sticks and folding canes in autumnal colours and patterns. Autumn is also a wonderful time for walking, whether round the park with an everyday derby or crook, or hiking across a windswept moor with a wooden staff or a modern trekking pole. Care should also be taken to attend to pe-Christmas buying. Many people now spread their Christmas shopping over several months, so canes that are suitable as Christmas gifts should be coming into stock now. Finally, the animal print trend is very much still with us: get those leopards, tigers, cheetahs, snakes and cows to the forefront in the most fashionable spots in the shop.
