what’s in a name


We’ve been asked a couple of times “why the name Bear Stock?  Do you shoot Bears or what?!”  No we don’t shoot Bears – not too many roaming around this part of the world but we can answer the question … Urs, the founder of Bear Stock, comes from Switzerland and was named after the Ursus Constellation which means ‘Bear’.  He happens to also like the furry guys and hence the name was born.  We can’t see that lovely constellation down here on the Southern side but we can see the lovely images Bear Stock has on offer – we hope you agree.
