Kamloops Self Storage Blog

Self storage tips and news

Our Kamloops self storage company offers many storage options suitable for adult children who’ve moved back home with their parents. The so called “boomerang kids” trend is not a new phenomenon. The term was coined by Seattle psychotherapists Jean Okimoto and Phyllis Stegall, who described the trend in their 1987 book “Boomerang Kids: How to Live with Adult Children Who Return Home”.

Valleyview Mini Storage in Kamloops is always busy, and 2021 was made all that busier, as we all negotiated the pandemic and its disruptions. As always, we published monthly blog posts to inform potential mini storage renters and our current customers. We’d like to wish all of you, especially our customers, a heartfelt Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! You are why we exist, and we’re grateful to have you as loyal customers.

Each holiday season, our Kamloops storage facility sees a boost to customer traffic as people get ready to decorate for Christmas. Many customers choose to store Christmas decorations in their storage unit, rather than at home, because 1) decorations take up a lot of space in home or apartment storage, and 2) many decorations are delicate and are better stored in a storage locker than in closets, garages, basements, etc.
