DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SpareBox Storage, a national self storage platform focused on consolidating the highly fragmented self storage market across the United States, announced today that is has acquired 13 stabilized properties in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and Amarillo, Texas from multiple sellers. Combined, these properties are comprised of approximately 330,000 net rentable square feet and 2,500 units with over 88% occupancy. The South Carolina portfolio acquisition opens a promising new market for SpareBox in one of the fastest growing markets in the nation, while enhancing the geographic diversification of the portfolio.

Our portfolio now consists of 37 stores across Texas, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida, with over 10,000 units and nearly 1.6 million square feet of rentable space. We remain focused on operational efficiencies, and our contact-free rentals and relentless improvement of the customer experience will continue to deliver value for our customers and for our broader portfolio.
“Self storage remains a standout performer among all real estate sectors in 2021, and SpareBox is aggressively pursuing great acquisition opportunities in small and mid-sized markets all across the country. We love working with other owners and operators to effect favorable transactions and add quality properties and new markets to our portfolio. Our pipeline of 2021 acquisitions is very robust and we look forward to continued expansion of the SpareBox footprint.”
