Ample lighting casts a bright, safe glow over the dozens of storage lockers that line the wide paths at Mr. Storage, where an electronic gate safeguards a fleet of storage units that range in size from 5'x5' to 10'x30'. The secure, locking doors to each storage unit open to unveil cavernous spaces large enough to shelter furniture, boats, and RVs. Customers can retrieve their belongings 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and on-site security continuously monitors the facilities.

The babble of special events drifts from private party rooms, where pizzas fuel fetes.
