Community members in Waltham Abbey, United Kingdom, hope the opening of a new self-storage facility will spur employment in the area.
While at the ribbon-cutting ceremony Eleanor Laing, a member of Parliament for Epping Forest, said the Self Storage Company on Cartersfield Road will provide space for small-business owners in the area.
The facility, one of 15 the company plans to open in the United Kingdom, includes 600 units. The building was previously occupied by OEP office furniture.
Managing Director Emil Sohrab said it took two years to open the business due to the economic climate.
