Two Memphis, Tenn., self-storage facilities operated by property-management company Absolute Storage Management (ASM) will host community yard sales on June 28. Storage Locker and Midtown Vault Storage have invited tenants and local residents to sell items and shop for treasures.
Storage Locker, at 6303 Summer Ave., serves the communities of Bartlett and Cordova. It will host its yard-sale event from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Participants can set up sales booths at no charge but must provide their own tables or means of display, according to ASM. There is no cost to shop for items.
Midtown Vault, at 1485 Madison Ave., serves the Midtown area. It will hold its yard sale from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Current facility tenants can sell their wares for free, while other sellers must pay $10. All participants must provide their own tables. The Midtown event will also feature live music from a local band that rents a unit at the storage facility as well as food donated by New Fellowship Church and the Amateur Athletic Union Fellowship basketball team. Door prizes will also be given away.
Midtown Vault manager Patrice May said she is excited to show the community the property is more than a storage facility. “We love to be a part of the community and to participate in different events,” she said. “This is our way of giving back to Midtown.”
Founded in 2002, ASM owns and manages self-storage facilities throughout the Southeast, operating more than 80 properties in 13 states. The company is actively seeking to add additional properties to its portfolio through traditional third-party management relationships and joint-venture/acquisition opportunities.
