The good news for our customers is that they will soon be able to find WeekDate in stores throughout the U.S. and worldwide," stated Odell. Until now, WeekDate has only been available through sales online. Sellers products are distributed worldwide, primarily through major book and gift retailers such as Borders, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, Prints Plus and Chapters (Canada), as well as the subsidiaries owned by these companies, and thousands of independent book, gift, stationery and specialty retailers.
"Sellers Publishing is thrilled to offer you this unique and one-of-a-kind organizational tool that will change the way you keep track of your life, and all the important things in it," according to a Sellers company spokesperson.

Who wants to write "tae kwon do" over and over and over?
It's likely you've been in this situation before: you're holding the phone between your ear and shoulder and your calendar in the other hand when the voice on the phone tells you that your monthly sales meeting, Johnny's weekly tae kwon do, or your weekly yoga group has been moved to another day of the week. While some scramble through each week or month to make the change, the smart person has a WeekDate® calendar… makes the change once and Voila! – done for the year. WeekDate® takes the stress out of everyday life.
