Warm up your necks folks – look left, look right right, look left, look right… it’s that time of year again. The 2 weeks when SW19 goes mad for strawberries and cream, oh, and a purple, green and gold branded grass court Tennis tournament. The Championships, Wimbledon thane begun.
Last year saw Andy Murray finally break the British drought in the World’s most famous Tennis Tournament to claim our first Men’s Championship since Fred Perry in 1936. 2014 could be the last real chance for a while for a second British win – next year he might be playing for Scotland. Somehow this year seems harder – Nadal has been on fire and Djokovic hasn’t exactly been under-performing of late. We’ve blogged before about the merits of short-term storage for sporting equipment so how else might our great value self storage help a popular sporting event?
As well as all the sporting equipment, most big events require an awful lot of support resources – temporary fixtures, fittings and seating as well as catering and food. Then there’s the memorabilia. The Wimbledon shop – for example – does a roaring trade over the two week championship as everyone lucky enough to get tickets wants to take home a memento. In 2013, 486,898 people attended the Championships. That’s a lot of Wimbledon Towels, even without the online sales.
An empty shop on final day would be a disaster – so where do you keep your stock to ensure you’ve still got plenty of baseball caps, Trilby Panamas and Wide brimmed sun hats for sale come final day? One solution is a self storage unit at a nearby facility. Somewhere like ABC Selfstore Wandsworth. If you don’t know already – you can but as much space as you need and, with us, you’ll only ever pay for the days you stay and you can move out with no notice period – see, no strings attached.
So whether you’re storing the next seasons’ collection of sportswear, training shoes and tennis rackets, or just towels and sun hats (or all of them) we can make room. You don’t need to be a big sports event with a thriving shop either. Our units are a cost effective way for even the small trader to ensure they have enough room to keep stock stored.
