Houston-area self-storage operator Amazing Spaces Storage Centers celebrated the grand opening of its fourth store with a party on April 20 and a $1,660 gift to Shriners Hospitals for Children. The six-story, 150,000-square-foot property at 2412 W. Holcombe Blvd., offers individual alarmed units from 5 by 5 feet to 15 by 30 feet. located near Houston’s Medical Center, which houses a Shriner’s Hospital.

Leading up to the event, the company partnered with Shriners Hospitals for Children to raise awareness and funds. Amazing Spaces gave 10 percent of gross sales to the hospital for the first 30 days after the new facility's grand opening. For the last four years, Amazing Spaces has been raising funds for the Shriners Hospital in Galveston through a partnership with the Texas Self Storage Association's “Starfish Campaign.”

“It just made perfect sense to partner again with Shriners Hospital because the charity has been a part of our philanthropy project for the last four years,” said Kathy Tautenhahn, vice president of Amazing Spaces. “Many of our team members recently went on a tour of the hospital to see how our donation would be used. Shriners’ mission is two-fold: to care for children regardless of ability to pay, and to give back to the community by training orthopedic surgeons across the nation. The tour was very inspiring to all team members.”

During the Amazing Spaces grand opening event, more than 100 attendees from the community and local businesses enjoyed food, wine and the chance to win several door prizes. They also had the opportunity to tour the facility, which includes a customer conference room with Wi-Fi and video conferencing, a retail area offering moving supplies, wine storage and truck rental.

Open since 1998, Amazing Spaces currently operates four locations in Greater Houston. The properties provide self-storage, RV and boat storage, wine storage, packing and moving supplies, and Penske truck rentals. Amazing Spaces Franchising LLC also offers franchise opportunities to qualified applicants.
