There are plenty of people moving to the Minneapolis and St. Paul area, and to accommodate them, we recently opened six more Public Storage locations in and around the Twin Cities. This growth increases our presence in the state by 12 percent.
We bought and converted existing storage businesses into Public Storage facilities around the Minneapolis metro area and the City of Hutchinson. We have a strong brand recognition in Minnesota with about 50 locations in the state, and we plan to keep on growing!
“These locations make us more competitive in Minneapolis and give us a larger footprint in the Twin Cities,” said Ryan Nelson, a Public Storage regional manager. “People are moving from rural areas in the state to the urban and suburban markets, and the population shift is driving the area’s development and the need for storage.”
Whether you’re moving from a different area in Minnesota, or you’re heading to the Twin Cities for the first time, there’s now a better chance of finding a Public Storage in your neighborhood. Keep reading to learn why we’re putting down more roots in the Land of 10,000 Lakes!
Minneapolis Metro Area Boosted By Strong Economy
The cold winter weather in Minneapolis and St. Paul isn’t stopping hardworking Americans from going there to look for a great place to call home.
Since 2010, the area’s population grew by about 10 percent, according to the U.S. Census. Locals say the job prospects and affordable housing, compared to some other major U.S. metro areas, are driving the increase.
“The Minneapolis area has been growing over the last couple years, because of the job market,” said Charles Gardiner, a Public Storage senior manager. “The unemployment rate is very, very low in Minnesota.”
Huge company headquarters, like those of United Health Group, Target, Best Buy and 3M, thrive in Minneapolis, bringing corporate-minded workers to town.
And who wouldn’t want to stay long-term thanks to all the fun things to do in town? From Vikings games at U.S. Bank Stadium to the world-famous Mall of America, there are plenty of reasons to love living in or near Minneapolis. Just don’t forget a jacket….a very warm jacket.
Besides the Twin Cities’ abundant job prospects, the area also has a good quality of life. In fact, the U.S. News and World Report ranked it as one of the Top 10 Best Places to Live in the country!
Public Storage in Minneapolis Makes Moving Easier
If you’re moving to Minneapolis area, there’s now a better chance of finding cheap Minneapolis storage units near you! Our six new locations span from Downtown Minneapolis to some nearby suburbs and out to the City of Hutchinson.
“There’s a lot of great features at these properties, from drive-up storage units to indoor, climate-controlled storage,” said Gardiner. “We’re getting a lot of great customers with these properties who have been happy here.”
Both of our new self-storage locations in Hutchinson are close to State Highway 7, making for easy errand stops after work or on the weekends. While movers headed to Downtown Minneapolis will find our new Public Storage at 425 Washington Ave N Minneapolis, MN 55401 in the hip North Loop neighborhood.
Public Storage has built up a reputation as the best storage company in the state after acquiring all of its properties to date in Minnesota from other, smaller storage companies. All built or remodeled within the last 20 years, these six new Public Storage locations offer the sizes and state-of-the-art features customers crave in and around the Twin Cities.
“Many of these locations have temperature-controlled spaces, which is important in Minneapolis where the outside temperature can dramatically fluctuate throughout the year,” said Nelson.
