Help Us Spread Happiness: Ask Your Favorite Store to Carry Our Socks

Since we opened in December 2016, you could only buy John’s Crazy Socks online at our website. Now, retail stores can carry our socks which means we can spread happiness to more people. We offer our socks through our wholesale program so your favorite store can offer John’s Crazy Socks to their customers.

After all, one of the keys to happiness is gratitude and we want to show how much we appreciate your support.

Wholesale Socks: You Can Carry John’s Crazy Socks in Your Retail Store 

John’s Crazy Socks opened in December 2016 selling directly to consumers through our website. Over time, John grew his store into the world’s largest sock store. Now, John is making his socks available to retail stores in our wholesale program so more customers will be able to experience the happiness of owning a pair of John’s Crazy Socks. 

John said, “We have a mission to spread happiness and we do it with our socks.” 

“Entering the wholesale market and helping retail stores carry our products will allow us to reach more people and spread more happiness,” said John’s co-founder and father, Mark X. Cronin. “Our customers love our socks and they know that when they buy our socks, they enable us to employ people with differing abilities – more than half our colleagues have a differing ability. Our customers feel good about supporting our Giving Back Program – we start by donating five percent of our earnings to the Special Olympics and have donated over $750,000 to our charity partners. Most of all, buying our socks lets customers spread happiness. Wearing our socks make people feel good.” 

Retail Offerings from John’s Crazy Socks 

Retail stores can now carry J’s, the private line of John’s Crazy Socks that include our famous Awareness Socks. The J’s are exclusive to John’s Crazy Socks with vibrant designs and construction that customers love. 

Our Awareness Socks celebrate causes like Down syndrome, Autism and Cerebral Palsy and raise money for charity partners like the National Down Syndrome Society, the Autism Society of America, and United Cerebral Palsy. 

“Our socks make a difference,” said John Cronin, “And that’s why they make our customers so happy.” 

Mark added, “Our customers tell us that just putting on our socks makes them feel good all day.”
