TOLEDO, Ohio, Sept. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul Moving & Storage at Alexis Road closed its retail showroom and ceased most on-site services on Tuesday.

The store at 50 W. Alexis Road served the do-it-yourself moving public in and around Toledo for 39 years. Five Team Members were let go due to the Sept. 13 closing.

The location will continue to serve as a U-Haul self-storage facility. It will be operated remotely by U-Haul Moving & Storage of North Toledo at 1739 W. Alexis Road, site of a former Kmart® store.

The Company purchased the former Kmart in 2019 and repurposed the property for a full-service retail, moving and self-storage facility. The new store is only two miles from the closing Alexis Road retail showroom.

Local U-Haul Companies are always exploring opportunities for growth as they pursue means to better serve the needs of customers, but sometimes find it necessary to close or relocate stores, shops and offices. Reasons for closures can include: long-term strategic plans; safety and security concerns; physical site conditions and limitations; shifts in demographics; availability of local Team Members; trends in migration; expansion of the U-Haul neighborhood dealer network; proximity to other new or existing Company locations; and external factors.

U-Haul dealers in and around Toledo continue to meet the needs of DIY movers. U-Haul has partnered with independent dealers to offer rental equipment since 1945. During these challenging times for small businesses, more than 21,000 dealers across the U.S. and Canada are generating supplemental income through their U-Haul partnership. When customers rent from U-Haul dealers, they are directly supporting small businesses in their community. Because no financial investment is required, dealers are not U-Haul franchises. They are simply small businesses committing their lot space for U-Haul equipment and time to meet the mobility needs of customers. Learn more about how to partner with U-Haul at uhaul.com/dealer.
