Storage Units: Ads and Anecdote

Manhattan Mini-Storage ads from 2007; Your closet's so narrow it makes Cheney look liberal; Your closet's scarier than Bush's agenda

First, a disclaimer: Storage units are often misused to store things of questionable value. But sometimes, they do make sense: as a temporary storage solution, for example.

Ads: This won't be news to anyone who lives in Manhattan, but Manhattan Mini Storage ran some pretty interesting ads last year.

2008 Manhattan mini-storage ads; will give $25 to one of five charities, including one regarding NYC carraige horses

Their current ads are quite different, but still not your usual self-storage ads.

Anecdote: Here's the story about two people who got locked into a Public Storage facility when the facility closed up a few minutes before the advertised closing time.
