Self storage may not be the first thing you think of when you think of Valentine’s Day, but that didn’t stop several members of the industry from trying to make the day more special for a few lucky people.
For example, Morgan Self Storage in Manchester, New Hampshire, had asked tenants to tell them who their Valentine was and the reasons why that person was so special to them. Each submission was entered into a drawing, with the winner receiving a dinner for two at a local restaurant.
Other Valentine’s Day standards were raffled off by other self storage companies. Everest Self Storage in Phoenix, Arizona, held a raffle to give away massive heart-shaped boxes of chocolates. Premier Self Storage in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, raffled off an enormous teddy bear holding a heart with “I Love U” on it. The lucky dad who won it said he’d be giving it to his daughter.
Facilities in the United States weren’t the only ones getting in on the act.
MyStore Self Storage, a facility in Witney, England, challenged customers to get into the Valentine’s Day spirit by asking them to find Cupid on the company’s website, fill out a form to tell them where they saw him, and then follow the company on Twitter and Facebook.
All entries received from February 10 through February 17 will be entered into a drawing for one of four £25 Waitrose (a British supermarket chain) vouchers.
