After filling all the units built last year, the only way for Red Roof Storage owners Mark and Nina Skic to rent more units, was to build more units. At the end of September, Red Roof Storage finished construction of a second, 22-unit storage building on their site at W4652 Cty. G in Merrill. Several units have already been rented in the new building.
“It’s filling up quickly already,” said Mark and Nina’s daughter, Stephanie Jewell, who manages Red Roof Storage.
Customers have 24-hour access to their units. Staff is available five days a week to help with unloading or backing in if necessary. The area is well-lit and spacious, making the units easy to access with trucks and trailers.
“People like having somebody on site,” Stephanie said. “We have eyes on it most of the time.”
All the interior walls in the storage buildings can be moved in five-foot increments, allowing Red Roof Storage to fit the space to the needs of the customer.
The Skics also own Taylor Insulation. When their former location on Champagne Street was destroyed in the April 2011 tornado, they relocated Taylor Insulation to an industrial building on Cty. G, directly across from Church Mutual. That building came with seven acres of property, which gave them the opportunity to construct the storage buildings.
In addition to the buildings, Red Roof Storage is also offering outdoor storage on their property. To protect items stored outside, Red Roof Storage offers shrink wrapping. Because the shrink wrapping equipment is mobile, vehicles, boats, campers and other items can be shrink wrapped either for storage on the Red Roof property or on the owners’ property. Stephanie’s husband, John Jewell, runs the shrink wrapping operation for Red Roof Storage.
