The Wall Street Journal reports that consumers don’t like looking at storage facilities nearby, although they do want to use them! urBin to the rescue.
From the article:
“Self-storage facilities are springing up around the country amid a supply shortage and strong demand from families, cramped city-dwellers and college students.”
“Local zoning boards and town councils don’t like self-storage warehouses because they pay little in property taxes, don’t hire many workers and typically are bulky, windowless eyesores.”
