Celebrating 10 Years with a Fresh Design at The Stick & Cane Shop
Friday, 13 July 2018 | Admin
This year marks our tenth birthday at The Stick & Cane Shop and to celebrate our birthday we have redesigned our website! The fresh look brings some new and exciting features making it easier for you to navigate, find the products that suit your needs best as well as offering much more advice and suggestions.
A Clearer Main Page
The main page that you visit has had a full re-design from top to bottom. Still featuring the same natural colours as before, we have cleared it up to include more white space so that there is less 'visual clutter' making it easier for you to browse and find the products you need.
The top of the screen contains most of the main areas you need when you visit, with quick links to log into your account, contact customer service and find our social media channels. The main menu bar, as before, is your main route into all of our products too. Below this we feature our beautiful carousel which is updated constantly to feature the main stock, brands and seasonal information. Below this we also have direct links to our main brands, helping you to find the names you know and love. Further down we have selected products that change from week-to-week and month-to-month featuring highlights that we think you will love.
We also now have a new area on the front page that provides you with frequently asked, essential information and tips such as:
- Which handle is for you?
- How to Measure for a Walking Stick?
- How to Fit a Wrist Cord
- How to Adjust a Folding or Extending Cane
A Refreshed Main Menu
We have updated and simplified the main menu to make it easier to navigate our site. Using beautiful fresh graphics, the menu features clear images for each category, providing a simplified view of the different sticks available.
Updated Product Pages with Clearer Images
We appreciate that with such personal things as walking sticks, it can be difficult to choose simply from browsing online, so we have enhanced the product pages too. Each product now has a delightful new page featuring the same clearer design, which we hope makes it easier for our customers to browse. We are refreshing all our images this year, so each product will now feature new images that show each product from a variety of angles. The images will also feature larger zoom images, allowing you to magnify the product to see all the details of our lovely sticks and canes.
Product descriptions are also in the process of being enhanced, providing our customers with more detail and clearer information about each product. Over the coming months we will also be revising the measurements to provide more detail, including imperial as well as metric measurements.
Each product also has a handy tab with customer reviews, so you can see what other customers have been saying about each product before you choose to buy!
We have also included clear graphics that link to our VAT reduction scheme, How to Measure for a Stick, Delivery Options, Our Returns Policy and the Enhanced Security of our website.
Our product pages also display other related items that we think would go along well with the product you are viewing.
So all in all, we hope you enjoy the new look Stick & Cane Shop website, and whether you are an existing customer who has been with us for the past decade, or a new customer just finding us, please stop by, browse our pages and we hope to serve you soon!
