Classic Canes
What to Stock Now

WHAT TO STOCK IN MAY 2015

This month's 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.

May is the first of the really big months for walking stick sales. Here in the UK, we have two bank holiday weekends, so people will be out and about visiting and walking. If you are in a walking area, a good stock of hiking staffs, trekking poles and thumbsticks is essential this month. A colourful selection of folding canes is important for most stockists now as people start to travel more. Retailers with female customers need to have as many colours and patterns of ladies' stick as they can give room to, as women choose pretty canes as accessories for their spring, wedding, holiday and racing outfits. Finally, in the UK, our general election on the 7th May is an ideal opportunity for yuor customers to demonstrate their political allegiance with a well chosen cane!

The one factor that promotes sales of walking sticks more than any other is the breadth of stock available. A really good selection is irresistable to stick users and present buyers, so stock up and make sure your stick display has the necessary oomph this spring!
