Lok'nStore's brand new store in Maidenhead

The Mayor of Maidenhead and Windsor, Cllr Andrew Jenner opened Lok’nStore’s newest bright orange, self-storage centre last week in Stafferton Way, Maidenhead.  Filmed by the BBC, he cut the ribbon at 11am  on the 29th January and the store was officially open for business, serving customers – 7 days a week – for self-storage and for sales of boxes & packing materials.

Self-storage is a rapidly growing service in the UK. It allows householders and businesses to rent storage space by the week with unit sizes ranging from a small cupboard up to a large garage size.  This allows customers to rent exactly the size they require for exactly the length of time they need, so saving themselves money and giving them a high level of flexibility. While in storage they can freely access their goods at any time during normal business hours including weekends.

Joining the Mayor at the celebrations were Lok’nStore executives, friends & family, local representatives from the business community and Lok’nStore’s chosen local charity the Alexandra Devine Children’s Hospice Service.

Lok’nStore is the only national storage company to open a self-storage centre in Maidenhead. The company has developed the 60,000 square foot store, turning a derelict eyesore into a smart new retail facility. The prominent orange building shares the development site with the supermarket chain Lidl, who are to open their store later in the spring. Neil Newman, Sales Director for Lok’nStore said:

“We are really excited to be opening our new flagship centre in Maidenhead.  We have had a fantastic response from local householders and businesses, with hundreds of enquiries about renting space. Our Maidenhead manager, and his team have done a great job to get the store ready and we are looking forward to working hard to help Maidenhead with its storage needs.”

Self-storage is a rapidly expanding business in the UK and the BBC was filming today at the opening. They are featuring Lok’nStore in an up-coming documentary about the growth of self-storage. The BBC thinks that Lok’nStore is a great example of a storage industry success story. Watch out for this programme this spring.
