It’s not every week that you need to go hunting for large plastic trays with lids! This week however, you’re in desperate need of them, and have no idea where on earth you’re going to find them!
You may need them for your garden, then again they may be for home storage. To be honest the reason you need them isn’t half as important as the location you’re going to find them in!
Don’t you just hate those days when you trail around nearly every shop in your area in search of an elusive item. Not only do you waste much of your precious time, but you don’t half get frustrated in the process!
Now I may not be able to alleviate your frustration when it comes to finding other items on your shopping list, but when it comes to large plastic trays with lids, I should be able to point you in the right direction. So here they come, the most probable locations:
Your Local DIY Store
Always a good bet for garden and home needs, your local DIY store may not only stock such trays, but may also very well offer a good selection.
Remember, you may not find the product you are looking for in the section that you think. Feeling confused? Let me explain. You’ve had a great idea to de-clutter your home and store all of your, let’s say shoes, in large trays with fitted lids – great idea, right?
So off you go to your local DIY store and naturally you start searching for the trays you have in mind in the home or storage section. Feeling frustrated and disappointed you leave the store and head for another possibility.
The thing is, the trays may have been in the store all along, just not where you were searching! You see, to the DIY store management, such trays may belong in the garden section, or in the bedroom section. So the lesson is; if you can’t find what you’re looking for, ask a sales assistant first before giving up!
These type of shops seem to be popping up everywhere these days and few of us complain about it. You know the stores that offer nearly everything at a discount, from bed linen to dog toys.
Not only can such stores be a great opportunity to find items like your needed trays, but you may also be able to get them at a fraction of the price.
Even if you can’t see the item you need in the store, don’t be afraid to ask at the till. Discount stores tend to have new stock in regularly and they may be able to advise you when they will have the very trays you need in stock.
So there you have it! Finding large trays with fitted lids may not be the mission impossible you initially thought it was! Check out both your local DIY store and any discount stores in your area, and if you don’t find what you’re looking for, just ask the sales assistant!
