Foot Locker's investment in Rockets of Awesome is part of the online retailer's $19.5 million Series C funding round. Now, Rockets of Awesome — which hasn't had much of a bricks-and-mortar presence other than a handful of pop-up shops — will be opening ministores within Kids Foot Locker locations across the country. Rockets of Awesome is also going to begin selling on Foot Locker's children's website.
Your locker is your home away from home - but only for a few moments at a time. Organizing your locker to be able to quickly grab your books, binders, and supplies can make sure you make it between classes on time, leave more time for hanging out with friends, and keep you going through the day. Locker shelves are the most basic of locker organizers - they double your space, they keep too much from piling up at the bottom, and make it easy to see all of your things. Magnetic bins for your locker door can add storage for smaller items, extra pens and other pocketables. And decorations and locker lights can help you give your locker a style all its own.
In schools without lockers, students are sometimes provided with two complete sets of textbooks, one set being kept at school for use in class, and the other being kept at home for referring to for homework, thus limiting the amount of heavy carrying that would otherwise be required without having lockers to store them in between classes. However, research has shown an increase in the incidence of back injuries in some students, which has been directly attributed to the lack of lockers for storing books in, thus forcing students to spend more time carrying heavy loads of books in backpacks.
“In many cases, they’re [homeless] building things like little shanty towns, bringing furniture in and camping out. There have been incidents at night where there have been brawls or loud arguments happening at 3, 4 a.m. waking people up. I do know that several neighbors have complained that they have found human waste in their yards,” said Romero.
Number of locking points: Locker doors may lock with either single- or three-point locking, but this is not normally chosen as a separate option, and the choice is usually dependent on the number of tiers in the lockers, or whether they are a high-security model, although some manufacturers do allow purchasers to specifically choose an option here that goes against their normal practice. Single-point locking locks the door at only the point where the latch engages with the door-frame, whereas three-point locking uses extensible steel rods to lock the top and bottom of the door as well.
