Flexible Inventory Storage for Your Retail Business

As the holiday season approaches, many retailers begin to worry about inventory management. With supply chain delays becoming more common, it's important to have backstock available in case of unexpected spikes in demand. However, not all businesses have the space to store excess inventory on-site. This is where Go Mini's comes in handy.

Retail is changing

When it comes to managing retail and predicting seasonality, a lot has changed. In the past, retailers could generally rely on customer behavior patterns staying relatively consistent from year to year. But now, things are much more unpredictable.

With the rise of online shopping, many consumers are starting to do their holiday shopping earlier and earlier. This means that inventory demands are shifting as well. Businesses need to be prepared for spikes in demand throughout the entire year, not just during the traditional holiday shopping season.

Experts predict the holiday shopping season in 2022 will be the earliest it has ever been. This is due to a combination of factors, including an increase in online shopping and a decrease in the number of people traveling during the holidays.

This means that businesses need to be prepared to meet customer demand earlier than ever before. And for businesses that don't have the space to store excess inventory on-site, mini storage containers can be a convenient and temporary solution.

What is Go minis?

Go minis is a leading provider of mini storage containers. We offer a variety of sizes to fit any need, and our containers are made of durable steel that can withstand the elements. Our mini storage containers are perfect for on-site inventory storage, especially during the holiday season and are offered in 3 sizes, so you only rent the space you need.


Go Mini's containers can be stored on-site and have a low ground clearance, which makes them easy to load and unload. And if your business needs extra space for the holidays, we offer flexible leasing options so you can rent as many containers as you need for as long as you need them.

How to prepare your retail business for the holiday shopping season

If you're a retailer, there are a few things you can do to prepare your business for the holiday shopping season:

  1. Review your current inventory and previous holiday season sales levels and order more stock if necessary.
  2. If you don't have enough space to store excess inventory on-site, consider renting portable storage containers
  3. Create a marketing plan to promote your holiday sales and specials.

The holiday season is a busy time for retailers, but with proper planning and preparation, it doesn't have to be overwhelming. By being proactive and having a plan in place helps to ensure your business is ready for anything.
