The products placed in stores is part of the brand awareness program that has been in effect for about 4 or 5 years. We offer more products as associates then the stores carry. It is not a problem but helps us get the word out that Watkins is still around. We as associates need to do more personal advertising so when someone gets a product in the store they can come to us for the rest of the product line.

One more thing I forgot to add:
We as associates can sponsor independent stores, like gift shops, health food stores etc and they can carry up to 20 different products on their shelves. We were unable to do this before the brand awareness program. I have several stores signed up and they do very well with the products and have the option to sponsor others, and build a business or just retail the products in their store.
