At the beginning of the Christmas period, many stores and businesses will have a high demand as people rush in to buy items for their loved ones and for themselves. This leads to a general increase in commodity prices. Despite the huge demand, not all goods are sold within the Christmas holiday season. As early as on the 26th of December, some stores will advertise a sale. The sale after the Christmas holiday is known as the January sale. Normally this starts in January but some stores may start early depending on the amount of stock available. The purpose of the sale is usually to clear the existing stock in readiness for the new season stock. The prices are greatly lowered and it attracts many shoppers. January sales have been known to attract equivalent sales to those during the Christmas period and therefore store owners need to stock up lots of packaging boxes in readiness for the January sales.

When a customer buys goods from a store, they expect the goods to be conveniently packed for them so as to make it easier carrying the shopping home or to whichever destination. Proper packaging for a customer is a good gesture that never goes unnoticed. It is a great motivator in encouraging a customer to shop more often at the store. Therefore packaging should be taken seriously and the assistants at the stores should be trained thoroughly on the art. This is because; there are several packaging solutions one can use to package different items at the stores and the assistants should know how best to package each item.

A common packaging solution is the packaging box. The packaging box can store single items or many items can be put into one box. The boxes are strong and will protect the items inside in many ways. The box will offer security to the items inside and it makes it easy to manage the luggage especially when many items are stored in one packaging box. Shoppers also like packaging boxes since they can be re-used in many ways.

Before the January sales the store owners should be keen to ensure that they do not run out of packaging boxes. For the store owners, the packaging boxes are a convenient option to use as packaging for shoppers since they are cheap to acquire and can be used to pack many items at once.
