DETROIT (BRAIN) — Detroit Cargo has had a busy winter. The company has moved to a larger location, added several new products and is now offering retailers a new point of purchase display.
The display is available to dealers who stock more than 12 Detroit Cargo bags. It assembles quickly with two screws and is designed to let customers know immediately how bags are mounted on a bike.
New products, all made in Detroit, include the Jefferson Handlebar bag. It's made from 6-to-7 ounce Latigo, vegetable-tanned American cowhide. It fits on most handlebars and has side flaps to keep out dust and debris. Available colors are Lager (looks like Miller Highlife), Amber (looks like amber ale), and Stout (looks like Guinness). Retail price is $100.
On the other end of the spectrum, the company is now offering a small front-pocket card holders made from fire hoses salvaged from demolished buildings in Detroit. The Firehose Card Holders are made from linen with leather trim. They hold about nine ID or credit cards or 30 business cards. Retail is $20.
