A grocery customer who uses a walking cane was the father of invention for a cane holder now available at all 15 Acme Fresh Markets.
The customer, who does not want to be identified, uses a motorized cart while shopping, placing his cane in the cart’s basket.
“He was concerned that germs [on the bottom of the canes] came into contact with food items,” said Doug Flinn, the store director of Acme at 2630 Bailey Road in Cuyahoga Falls.
Also, the customer noted that cane users sometimes forget their canes, leaving them in the baskets. Flinn said he was well aware of that problem. “We’d have five to 10 canes here,” at any given time, said Flinn, a 40-year employee of the Acme chain.
Last year, the customer showed up at the Bailey Road store with a simple device to store canes inside the cart, while also making them more visible: a cane holder, made with a length of PVC pipe.
Flinn, intrigued, allowed the customer to attach holders to four of the motorized carts, using sturdy plastic ties. Sometime later, Acme President Steve Albrecht was visiting the store, and Flinn pointed out the cane holders.
Albrecht ran with the idea. He brokered a licensing deal with the customer to allow Acme workers to make holders for the dozens of motorized carts in the chain.
“They’re so popular,” said Katie Swartz, Acme’s director of marketing. The holder “truly did respond to a need.”

The problem: Many seniors do not have a place to conveniently place their walking canes when they use a motorized shopping cart. Also, many folks using canes often forget their canes when they use a motorized shopping cart.
The solution: A cane holder attached to the basket of a motorized cart. A simple, practical idea, but it took Mr. Doug Flinn (330-923-1417), Store Director at the Acme Fresh Market at 2630 Bailey Road in Cuyahoga Falls, to understand the problem and present the solution of a cane holder that could be attached to the baskets of the motorized carts in his Acme Fresh Market.

NORTON — According to company officials, Acme Fresh Market is the first company in Ohio to purchase one of Caroline’s Carts.
The cart is designed specifically for parents of special needs children. Caroline’s Cart faces the child toward his or her parent at all times. The seat (weight limit of 250 pounds) also has a small recline to help with children who have low muscle tone. The handles swing open, and the floor brake engages to allow a convenient load and unload situation. It also has a five-point safety harness that is adjustable.
