Storing Black Friday Gifts

Thanksgiving is a day for us to give thanks, spend time with our family and friends, enjoy great meals and cheer for our favorite professional and college football teams. There are also many activities over Thanksgiving weekend to start the holiday season. Black Friday is the “official” kick-off to the Christmas shopping season, even though some retailers are moving their opening hours to Thanksgiving evening. “Black Friday” is seen as a day to get incredible bargains on electronics, toys and even clothing. Most retailers have already released their list of sale items, so shoppers can prepare their shopping strategies after they have eaten their Thanksgiving meals. The Saturday after Thanksgiving has been designated as Small Business Saturday in order to promote local small businesses. Many small businesses in Baltimore will be taking part in the event.  For shoppers who would much rather skip the crowds and shop online, there is “Cyber Monday”, which is one of the busiest online shopping days of the year.

Holiday Decoration Storage

Self Storage is a great option for shoppers to store their Black Friday and Cyber Monday purchases.  It is also a great place to “hide” your gifts from snooping family members!! ezStorage rentals are month-to-month, which is perfect for storing items for the holiday season.  Renting a self storage unit is also a great solution for holiday storage such as Christmas trees, wreaths, lighting, inflatable displays and ornaments. Storing these decorations in self storage will help make your home, basement or garage clutter free after the holidays.

Retail Holiday Storage

If you are a small retail business, November and December are usually your busiest time of the year. You have an abundance of inventory and no place to store the items in your store. Self storage is a perfect option for equipment and inventory storage. The self storage unit can be used as a secondary storage room for your business and will give you peace of mind that your items are safe and secure until you need them.  You can add shelving in your storage unit for additional organization of your goods. Choose a self storage unit that is close to your retail location for easier access to your items, so you can restock your store when needed. ezStorage wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! And best of luck with your Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday shopping!
