Thinking of going to CBI this Saturday morning. Crazy or not?

How crazy are the lines at CBI at 9am on the Saturday after BF?

Thinking of going but if the lines are going to be extra long even that early, I'll wait an extra week before going.

What was your experience?

I use the NF, NY location of Secure Storage http://wnyselfstorage.com/wny-self-stor ... -falls-ny/ and never have to worry about going there on any day including Saturday as there are never lineups. Same service as CBI with less hassle (no personal info and photocopies of drivers' licenses and passports required when you register, etc) and never a line-up. They get all my business.

CBI did not require a copy of my driver's license or passport and I didn't have to give them any more info then I give any other company. Name, address, etc.

I think going on a saturday after cyber monday- ya they could be long. If you get there first thing in the morning- there may still be a line. That being said- the lines are nowhere near as bad as they used to be, but I do find the service very slow.

I wouldn't go then, too many ppl with same thought process, OP.

I'd wait it out a little longer or go on a weekday. Everyone is itching and eager to get their BF shopping goodies.

OK they must've changed it yet again. Anyway, at the same price of five dollars I'm not sure why people CBI when other options like the one I mentioned are just as good with no lineups.

Don't see much info on the website. What the price per package? Do they have a bulk rate or annual package? Storage fees?

I'll be going on Saturday morning. I don't expect anything more than a 10 minute wait. I've been over every Black Friday and the following weekend to pick up packages for a few years now.

Certainly a much more helpful comment than DJ Peanuts'. Thanks!

I went tonight.... It was open until 7 PM. Only 12 people in line. Grabbed a coffee. Excellent service (as always.)
