Self-storage owners Kevin and Monica Gingerich have opened Affordable Self-Storage in Woodburn, Ind. The property at 4550 N. Webster Road comprises 96 units in three storage buildings. The design includes movable partition walls to accommodate different unit sizes as needed, according to the source. The property offers traditional drive-up units with 24-hour access.
The facility is near Woodlan High School at the corner of Webster Road and Old U.S. 24. The site is in Allen County, about four miles west of Woodburn. It will also serve the communities of Harlan and New Haven, Ind., and Fort Wayne, Ohio.
The couple also owns Leo Mini Storage in Leo, Ind., which has climate-controlled unit options. The Gingeriches acquired the Leo property in 2012 and began seeking a second location after running out of expansion room, the source reported. They settled on the Woodburn site after spending several years looking to either buy an existing business or develop a new facility.
Kevin Gingerich became interested in self-storage after spending 26 years working in the concrete business. He retired from the concrete industry in 2016 and now handles property maintenance at the storage facilities. Monica Gingerich oversees the managerial duties. The couple has two children.
