Classic Canes
What to Stock Now

WHAT TO STOCK IN MARCH 2015

This month's advice for Classic Canes stockists. Trade prices are not shown here, but are available to retailers upon request.

The main walking stick selling opportunities of the next few weeks are UK Mother's Day (Sunday 15th March 2015) and the Easter holiday weekend (Friday 3rd to Monday 6th April 2015). Many a pretty, floral walking stick or folding cane is bought as a present for a mother. The Easter weekend sees many people starting to take more walks and little holidays, which all boosts stick sales. Also, the new spring fashions are in the shops, so stock up on ladies' canes in spring colours because a new outfit deserves a new cane.
