On April 18 and 19, Patriot Self Storage of North Port, Fla., will hold grand openings for two facilities, hosting events that include raffles and entertainment as well as a petting zoo, bounce houses, clowns and games for kids. The new sites are finally opening after six years of planning and two years of construction, according to Jill Luke, property manager of one location.
Because Hal Perdew, owner of both locations, is a former military helicopter pilot, the businesses offer a special discount for veterans and active military members. In addition, a portion of every rental will be donated to the Fallen Heroes organization, Luke said.
Luke also emphasized that Patriot Self Storage prides itself on community outreach. She encourages organizations to turn to the facilities if they need a place to hold community events.
The Saturday event will take place at 2245 Bobcat Village Center Road; the Sunday event will be at 6029 Talon Bay Drive. Both will run from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
