“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.
Stolen Spirits inspired us right away with their contagiously cool branding and fresh approach to the art of rum-making. If you’ve never heard of them, you should first know that they are currently the only company in the world that sells “smoked rum.” The inventive New Zealand-born label came to life when two business partners with a common passion for high-quality rum, and a desire to escape the corporate world, shook up the liquor industry with their wild success. The humble beginnings of this grassroots company first started operations in an Auckland apartment in 2010. Today, their award-winning rum has developed an international following of devoted drinkers and bartenders across New Zealand, Australia and the U.S. The company has also raked in various international awards and recently sold a controlling interest to a U.S.-based company for $21 million NZ.

At SchoolLockers.com, we love to hear about our lockers being used for important reasons–but sometimes the true value of storage escapes us because we don’t always hear about the meaningful service they provide. One of our most valued projects involved finding lockers for a local, non-profit Christian organization called Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). This amazing organization partners with another organization called Kids Feeding Kids, and their joint efforts have provided as many as 161,737,104 meals to 50 countries worldwide…can you say kudos?! Not only does FMSC provide numerous meals to impoverished communities, they’ve also helped implement a variety of sustainability programs to provide resources for clean water, agriculture, health care, education, spiritual development and more.
New Lab’s open office design with cubicles and metal lockers
Reinventing an Industry
Building 128 around WWII, before it became New Lab
New Lab has taken state of the art to a whole new level by renovating an old World War II machine shop called Building 128 into a space that would be home to scientists, inventors, and business owners. The design would allow for every need to be met for up to 350 individuals and 50 companies. Whether an open collaborative space was needed or a private area to focus on work, New Lab thought of everything. Featuring studios, lounges, open cubicle work spaces, meeting rooms, and 4,500 square feet of event space, this is truly a unique collaboration space.

“How much does a locker cost?” We get asked that question pretty much every single day. And the answer? It depends. Our selection is large and varied, full of different sizes, styles and types of lockers. The material a locker is made out of–typically metal, plastic or wood–affects the price (check out our blog post about the differences in these types of materials to find out more). If you’re looking for a bank of lockers (3-wide instead of just one individual locker, for example), that factors into the cost. We also offer custom options and accessories that cause the price to fluctuate.
Taking all of that into consideration, we truly do have lockers to fit every budget. You can spend anywhere from $10.95 (for our Tiny Steel Lockers) to upwards of $2,500 for some of our heavy duty and stainless steel lockers. Here’s a breakdown of some of our more popular styles of lockers in price points on the lower end of most people’s budgets. 😉
Single tier school lockers are among the most popular style of lockers we sell—and for good reason. As their name implies, they are ideal for use in any type of school. But they’re also a great, secure storage solution for employee break rooms, garages, gyms, hospitals, mud rooms, offices and basically any other space you can think of!
