Business magazine Forbes said a reason why self-storage facilities are unpopular in many communities is because they provide little in terms of employment. According to the United States Census Bureau, in 2012, the self-storage industry gave jobs to an average of 2.46 people per establishment, a decrease of 8.2% from 2007’s records.
Even so, employers have proven that the industry is a recession-proof investment. With 24% of the United States’ population composed of the baby boomer generation, there is a sure customer base for the industry, as this group is interested in downsizing, procuring smaller housing units or opting to live in retirement homes while getting rid of very few possessions. Another key customer base for the industry are small businesses who need space for housing inventory.
