Organize products by category
We need the ability to organize products by category and sub-category. For example, "apparel", "lessons", "events", etc.
We intend to sell a number of different items in our online store to our members. As it is, members have to hunt through several unrelated items to find the one that they are interested in. Right now, I can somewhat limit the confusion by putting tags on the items and creating "sub-stores" that only show specific tags, but that is a bit confusing also. If there was 1 store with categories, it would be much easier for our members to navigate to the item they want to buy.
Did I get you right, that you want to display all products on a single page, but visually organize them in categories?

I created separate "pages" not in the menu system and for each page used the catalogue widget with the product's category tag to separate the items. Then on the top page I have a nice picture link to these new pages. Works perfectly.
All you need though is a "back to store" button which will return users to the top page.
Works a treat!
So create two new pages, one for Trail Maps and another for Clothing. Then tag your items and use the catalogue widget specifying only Trail Maps or Clothing on the page.

Is there a way to have categories in the store. For example we have Trail Maps and Clothing. Is there any way to have drop down menus or any way to separate them
