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.

“The cane holders work great! Customers like the convenience and do not forget their canes!” said Mr. Flinn. “The pesky problem of what to do with their canes when they shop is solved. Our customers who use our motorized carts really appreciate that Acme Fresh Markets is helping to make their shopping easier”, emphasized Mr. Flinn.
