The 4th of July is a truly American holiday that is not observed in any other country. The self-storage industry is also a pure American invention – we have more storage in the U.S. than every other country in the world combined. But with all that space comes a serious responsibility. There are billions of dollars invested in this sector, both by individuals who hold shares in public REITs as well as those who have bought their own storage facility either individually or in partnerships. Storage has evolved from a goofy concept with little serious respect in the 1960s to a serious investment class only 50 years later. It’s that type of determination and freedom of thought that has made our country great from its founding.
We wish you a Happy 4th of July!
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank those who currently serve in the military, or have served in the past. You have made this country what it is today, and protected our liberties at huge personal expense and sacrifice. We thank you for your service!
