The community resident who simply goes by “Santa” will retire along with his helpers
December 10, 2014- Profile Self Storage, facility located in Hooksett, NH has been creating the “Santa’s Workshop” in its management office for the public for past five years. The community resident who simply goes by “Santa” and his helpers will be retiring after this year’s event. The self-storage is owned by David, Ken and Paul Scarpetti. It is located at 180 Londonderry Turnpike.
The community tradition began 15 years ago in Santa’s own garage, which doubled as a workshop complete with a wood stove and work stations for the elves. He and his wife eventually expanded their festive decorations to include the entire back yard, but the venue was still too small, Santa told the source. Santa’s Workshop drew 125 people the first year and about 2,400 last year, the source reported.
Every kid at the workshop get handmade, wooden toy crafted by a local volunteer. They can also have their picture clicked with Santa and built toys. The event will be held between 6pm and 8pm through Saturday.
Profile Self Storage offers traditional storage, boat and RV storage. It is family owned and operated.
