Storelocal has broken new ground in Hercules, California!  As the only self-storage facility in the city limits of Hercules, this facility – owned by The Claremont Group and operating under the Storelocal Brand – is getting a lot of attention!

The grand opening was a festive event filled with community support, champagne, gift baskets, and more. Check out the video below.

This creates a seamless experience for tenants and makes life easier for owners and managers.

Investing in the Community

Engaging with the community and giving back is a great way to market your self storage business and build rapport with locals, and Storelocal Hercules is a shining example of that!
