Self Storage for Everyone

Case Studies

River & Ivy: boho-inspired homewares

A bohemian-inspired retail company, River Ivy offers customers a variety of home decor products from talented creators around the world, all from their 250 sq ft storage unit in our Rugby facility. 

The challenge

After unfortunately losing her job during the first COVID-19 lockdown, founder Harleigh decided to take a leap of faith and set up a brand new business – River & Ivy. However, establishing the business from her spare room with just £500 in July 2020, she soon realised that she needed a location to store their growing stock and to pack orders. That’s where our storage facilities come in. 

The solution

Initially, River & Ivy started storing products at our Rugby storage facilities using just a singular 50 sq ft unit. But, soon, as the business grew, Harleigh recognised a need to upscale her operations to fulfil the number of orders coming through. They currently operate two 100 sq foot units and are set to move into another 175ft sq unit very soon.  

Why Ready Steady Store?

For anyone starting a business, access to affordable business premises is key, especially if you have a large amount of stock to store. For Harleigh, our self storage units provided the perfect opportunity to kick start her business, without having to invest a huge amount of funds into commercial space. 

“The units are close to home, making them really convenient for me, while all the staff are friendly and helpful and the store itself is always tidy and welcoming. The flexible access times and great competitive rates allow me to upsize as my business grows.”
