January 2, 2017: Elite Stor Capital Partners LLC, an equity investor focused on the self-storage industry, is converting the Carolina Forest Flea Market in Myrtle Beach, S.C., to a Storage Rentals of America facility.
“We have a lot of sadness going on,” said Beau Singletary, owner of Wind Over The Water Inc., a vendor at the market since 2015. “Some of our regular customers come in and they’re sad to see us go.”
