Who can accept and store packages for me (in NYC) while Im out of town?

Asked by marikastar (11points) April 26th, 2008

My fiancee and I are going to be out of town for a few months leading up to our wedding. We are registered with a couple stores and know people will start sending us stuff, but don’t know where to have it sent! A sublettor will be staying in our apartment in Brooklyn and we cant ask him/her to be around to deal with deliveries. Anyone else ever been in this situation?

Have you checked with the stores, where you registered, if they can store it for you?

Yeah, not all of them, but Crate and Barrel won’t.

Many times you can talk to your local wrap-and-pack store—for a monthly fee they’ll store things for you, including (I would assume) packages. I did this in college for my things when I went out of town for the summer.

Plus, the wrap-and-pack stores need the money.

Bodega! When I lived on 81st and York I had an agreement with the bodega that is next to my old building. I threw a moderate tip there way, and they were happy to hold on to packages for me.
