These Minneapolis-area
Public Storage locations
span across the metro area, from Downtown
Minneapolis to the popular nearby suburbs of Lakeville, Edina, New Hope
and Bloomington, as well as in the City of Hutchinson.

"These locations make us more competitive in Minneapolis and give us a
larger footprint in the Twin Cities," said Ryan Nelson, a Public Storage
regional manager. "People are moving from rural areas in the state to
the urban and suburban markets, and the population shift is driving the
area's development and the need for storage."

The U.S. News and World Report named Minneapolis-Saint Paul one of the Top
10 Best Places to Live
in the country. And we can see why! The
abundant affordable housing, compared to other major housing markets,
and low unemployment rate make the city a place for dreamers and doers.

Public Storage has a strong brand recognition in Minnesota. In just the
last decade or so, the Company opened approximately 50 locations around
the state.

The six locations acquired by Public Storage this week are all newer
properties or remodeled ones with state-of-the-art features, some of
which include climate-controlled units and drive-up storage spaces.
