Return of the Prodigal Storage Staff

The week is nearly done, but it has taken me this long to catch up from the recent ISS Reno Expo, which took place July 19-22. Tradeshows wreak havoc with your schedule, not to mention your house, your bank account, as well as your mind, body and spirit (those minute things). You come home to an overflowing inbox, mailbox and e-box ... Your pets and spouse feel neglected ... The laundry has piled ...

Saturday's a big day for New Jersey businesses. Whether they like it or not, July 15th marks the start date of a statewide sales-tax increase from 6 percent to 7 percent. And that's not all. Storage operators get theirs on October 1, when the new tax will be levied on a whole host of previously exempt services, including self-storage.

No good deed...

Every spring, Inside Self-Storage compiles the data for its new annual Buyer's Guide and Top-Operators List, which gets published as the magazine's August issue. And every spring, we have companies that—for whatever reason—miss the boat on these free opportunities. Perhaps they never received the fax or e-mail invitation to participate; or their form got lost in the cybersphere; or the person ...
