The holidays can be a challenge when it comes to keeping your sanity, with gifts to buy, halls to deck, a house to winterize and prepare for guests, and countless other items to cross off of your to-do list on top of your regular work and family obligations. It may not seem obvious, but we’ve come up with five ways lockers can help take the stress out of your holidays.
The holidays are approaching quickly–are you done with your shopping or still looking for ideas? Our lockers will make great gifts for everyone on your list! Check out our 2017 Holiday Gift Guide to see some of our bestselling kids lockers and find out why they would be fun surprises underneath the Christmas tree this year.

Just one more week until our Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale goes live! We don’t want to leave you guessing, so we thought we’d give a little insider information about the lockers we’ll have on sale so you can plan ahead and pick out the perfect lockers for everyone on your list. 😉 Keep reading for our Black Friday 2017 Sneak Peek!
One of our favorite things to do is share creative ways to use lockers. Contrary to what you might think, they aren’t only for schools or gym locker rooms. That’s part of what makes lockers such a fabulous storage solution! They are extremely versatile and come in so many different styles and configurations that you can use them in practically any room in your home!
Outdoor storage solutions can pose a bit of a problem. You need something that provides plenty of storage space but that is also durable enough to stand up to the elements, whether it’s raining, snowing or just unbearably hot. 😉 We have lockers that are able to handle all of those requirements—and look pretty good while they’re at it. Keep reading for five ways you can use lockers outside (and which type we recommend in each setting!).
About “The Boss”
If you happen to be a fan of TLC’s hit show Cake Boss, then you’re probably familiar with master baker Buddy Valastro. The well-known celebrity chef, entrepreneur and reality star happens to be on our list of inspirational clients. The former ‘mom and pop’ bakery’s national success didn’t happen overnight, but comes from generations of gifted bakers. The family-owned bakery known as “Carlo’s Bake Shop” has deep roots that go back to 1910, when it was originally opened by Carlos Guastaffero. The shop was eventually acquired by Buddy’s father, Bartolo Sr., and after his death in 1964, his children Grace, Maddalena, Mary, Lisa and Bartolo Jr. “Buddy” continued carrying out the decadent legacy.
Office Lockers, An Unlikely Source for a Creative Touch
When you think of a financial building, you might imagine a boring beige or gray building full of drab cubicles–but BlackRidge Financial’s new building in Fargo, ND is anything but boring. Every wall and piece of furniture there has a story or hidden meaning. In one room, you’ll find a table made from a replica of the Fenway Park scoreboard with replicas of famous baseball bats for legs. In other parts of the building, you’ll find steampunk light fixtures, a 2-ton steel chandelier, and flooring from the old basketball court at North Dakota State University. To complete the sports theme, they added some office lockers instead of a coat rack. The place is full of hidden (and not-so-hidden) references to sports, the band Rush, and the Star Wars movies.
There are just a few weeks left until Mother’s Day…stumped on what to get your mom, mother-in-law or the mother of your children this year? A locker may not be the first thing that comes to your mind, but check out our Mother’s Day Gift Guide for some awesome ideas involving lockers that will help make life easier for the mothers in your life.
“I’m really excited to host a show that starts today, instead of tomorrow”. -Jimmy Fallon
Sometimes you get called for a school in need of some new lockers, and other times you get a call for school lockers for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. And they need them—like yesterday. Selling lockers to the public has its perks, but when we get to work on exciting jobs like this, with one of the coolest, most down-to-earth comedians in the business, it truly pays off. If you don’t know Jimmy Fallon, you are missing out on one of the most talented, unique comedians around who has his own highly popular late-night show on NBC (formerly The Jay Leno Show) as well as numerous other comedic achievements under his belt.
