U.K. self-storage operator The Store Room has completed a £200,000 expansion of its facility in Leeds, England. The work was completed over a two-week period in January and was officially opened last week. A number of domestic and commercial customers have already moved into the new space, according to a press release.
The expansion was driven by an increase in consumer in the second half of 2013, which left the Ring Road facility close to capacity. It comprises units ranging from 25 to 1,000 square feet.
“We found ourselves short of space in 2013, and we therefore added more rooms in January of this year," said Jeremy Bradburn, managing director. "The local economy has definitely picked up since August 2013, with local businesses and people moving house being the main growth areas. Our inquiries and customer numbers are up significantly year on year, which shows us that the local Leeds economy is starting to pick up; and this gives us great confidence for the months ahead.”
The Store Room also recently completed a 10,000-square-foot expansion of its Leicester site.
Established in 2007 and headquartered in Manchester, The Store Room operates self-storage facilities in the English communities of Bradford, Leeds, Leicester, Manchester, Preston and Rotherham.
