As a family starts to grow, the breadwinners accumulate two things rather quickly: possessions and monthly bills. Many resort to individual storage lockers in Vancouver to address their increasing number of household items and personal mementos. What people fail to realize, however, is that these storage lockers can also help them take care of their bills. How? Business reporter Katie Prescott of BBC described in a report how storage units are giving enterprising individuals a place to earn an extra buck:
Starting a small business is always an option that some can take to earn extra and provide a better quality of life for themselves and their families. However, the high cost of renting commercial space discourages many from becoming proprietors. The viability of Vancouver storage facilities, like those operated by General Store-All, as hubs for startups has the unique potential to become an industry game-changer and give many a chance to improve their lives.
