Everyone knows the best time to buy turkey-shaped place mats is the day after Thanksgiving, and the best time to buy Christmas decorations is the day after Christmas. Retailers just can’t keep those seasonal items in stock, and slash the prices to clear the shelves. But it’s not just consumers who benefit from these end-of-the-season sales. Small business owners and retailers can take advantage of this opportunity to add items to their inventory that they can use or sell during the next holiday selling cycle, at a savings of as much as 75-80%.
What you may not realize is that these kind of seasonal deals are available to businesses at other times of the year as well. Small business owners can stock up on office supplies during back-to-school sales, and electronic equipment during January and February, just like consumers.
The key is having the space to store items that will have to wait, and this is when using self-storage for business is right on the money. As we talked about in this post, businesses can use self-storage as a low-cost way to expand their usable space. Why use valuable office or retail space to store inventory, when you can use flexible, affordable self-storage. Some of our business-friendly features include:
- Month-to-month lease terms
- Business discounts
- Extended access hours (available upon request)
- Commercial delivery acceptance
- Online payment option
Our storage facilities are perfectly suited to storing inventory, as well as supplies, records, and equipment. All of our Dollar Self Storage locations offer these amenities to business and commercial tenants; in addition, at our Third Street, Corona, CA location we offer storage units up to 1000 square feet, individual alarms and garage door openers.
So go ahead and take advantage of all those holiday sales to grow your business!
