LifeStorage Centers LLC has acquired a self-storage facility in Mokena, Ill., bringing the companys portfolio in the region to 17.
The former American Secure Storage, 8531 191st St. along the I-80 commerce corridor, features 717 storage units, office space and a retail store with boxes, packing and shipping supplies. It also features climate-controlled and drive-up storage, and RV and boat storage. LifeStorage plans to add a U-haul truck rental center this spring.
This facility was so beautifully constructed by its original owners and has so many amenities, said Michelle Wight, district manager. The lobby features granite countertops and looks kind of like a bistro. Plus, there is a wine-storage center and full conference room for rental with AV, Wi-Fi, and free Starbucks coffee.
As a special welcome promotion, the Mokena location will offer 50 percent off storage rent for the first two months.
LifeStorage was founded in 2002 by Jean Jodoin and Christopher Barry.
