We're always stocking the store. Whether making our own hand-dipped truffles (pictured), making our own fresh fudge, or getting in new gift items, we're often, at this time of year either making our products, ordering products (greeting cards, gifts, toys, puzzles, plush items and of course candy), or changing things around.
It's already proving to be another challenging year, as many of our vendors continue to experience issues related to Covid, supply chain logistics, or the weather (thinking of our Texas vendors right now). It reminds me, as we are stocking the store, about how much we are connected. Something happening in Texas or anywhere in the world for that matter, can affect us here in Cody, Wyoming. Thankfully we have the ability to carry some additional items and stock, so we can weather the supply chain hiccups, but it's caused us to panic just a little, in the past 12 months, because sometimes we wondered if we would run out before we got more supplies and products in the store.
We so appreciate our customers, both local and distant! As I type out these word, I realize again, that in order to stock the store, we need products that help our customers, so you can come in and get the items you need.
This is a slow season, but it's a good break and reminder to stock and be thankful for what we have. I know, sounds a little like a Thanksgiving post, but it's true. Stocking the store makes us all a bit more thankful, and hopeful, for another good year.
All of us at Cowtown Candy Company hope y'all have a blessed and fruitful year. We hope to see many of our customers as the weather clears and spring eventually returns. Summer is coming and we're getting stocked and ready.
