U-Haul announces the conversion of former Piggly Wiggly grocery store to self-storage in Saukville, WI
U-Haul owns over 44 million square feet of storage space

January 6, 2018: Established in 1945, Phoenix-based U-Haul International Inc., which operates over 1,300 self-storage locations across North America, has converted a former Piggly Wiggly grocery store in Saukville, Wis., to self-storage. 

U-Haul Moving & Storage of Port Washington at 835 E. Green Bay Ave will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony on January 11th. The event, 3-5 p.m., will include refreshments, giveaways and facility tours, according to a press release.

The location opened in a limited capacity in June 2016 with truck and trailer rentals, U-Box portable-storage containers, and moving and packing supplies. The renovated building now comprises 40,901 square feet of storage space in more than 130 units. Reports:
"We're excited to reveal the work we put into revitalizing this building," said Mike Schneider, president of the U-Haul Co. of South Eastern Wisconsin. "We're introducing this top-of-the-line facility and our new U-Haul Truck Share 24/7 self-service program, which offers Saukville the latest, easiest and most secure truck-rental process in the industry."

U-Haul has several conversion projects underway, including an abandoned strip mall in Baraboo, Wis. The facility opened in November with a temporary showroom, offering moving and packing supplies, truck and trailer rentals, professional hitch installation, and U-Box portable-storage containers.
