VERY! Lifting and carrying boxes that weigh up to 50 pounds, climbing up ladders in stock rooms to pull boxes off shelves, lots of bending, stooping.

The job is quite physical and a cane could not be used, especially when lifting the boxes filled with cards, bows and ribbons, paper items and gift wrap.

If you needed a cane it would have to be a very very small store with only cards/wrapping supplies.
