Depending on numbers, if a small amount place them in egg boxes with eyes pointing up and keep in a frost free light area.
If like me loads then I get crisp boxes cut the down to about 3 inches to make trays and do as above.
This allows the chits to sprut ready for planting.

that's an early delivery but then you've  got them and it shouldn't  be a problem keeping them and that's good advise from Aidy how you do that

I made my own wooded potato chitting trays I usually set our potatoes in the potting shed but then again ours are usually delivered around early February I also buy a few early potatoes late January and keep them frost free
