Milk Crates?

11 posts in this topic

Anyone know where I can get some of those plastic Milk Crates in the Twin Cities area? Been looking and cannot find any retailers that sell them.

Want to use one for strapping Ice Rods to and tackle storage for my one man flip over. Plan is to bungee cord the crate to the seat as I pull the flip over across the Ice, and then be able to easily remove it when I'm fishing and to bring my stuff into the house after done fishing

I was at the huge thrift store in Sun Ray Center off of 94 in Oakdale last week and they had 2 real milk crates.

Thanks, I do know where that Mall in the Sunray Shopping Center is, but a little to far to drive. Will check out Manards and see what they have.

I work at a major retailer and see piles and piles of milk crates on a daily basis. I always laugh at the writing on these things. They all say return to owner...Felony if stolen, yada yada yada. Yet, if you look at them, they're all from different companies. So Kemps may have crates from 50 diffenent distributers grin

Awesome that you were able to get a few from "the source" smile

The Menards Crates are a little longer then the ones from the milk companies, they will still hold a 20# with a little room left over.

You can sometimes find abandoned crates behind restaurants and grocery stores. These are not the ones by the loading dock! In college I seemed to have more crates than actual furniture. I think I only have one or two left...... 15 years of garage sales tend to weed out the crates.
