Self Storage Conversions for Huge Profits & 100 + Kmarts closing

100+ Kmarts for You to Convert To Self Storage for HUGE Profits! by Marc Goodin

Conversions of exiting building into self storage is typically faster then building from scratch. And often these empty grocery stores, Wal marts, sears, Kmarts etc are located in high population and high traffic areas so they are prime self storage locations. While conversions cost about the same as new construction your the regulatory process is much easier and you can cut your time in half.


Adding the self storage units cost aprox. $10 to $12 per square foot. And often you can expect to spend another $10/sf foot on soft costs, building improvements, office build out, signage, parking improvements.

You can find these buildings by simply driving around your neighborhood. If you have a KMART or SEARS in your town you have a 1 in 10 chance it may be an option for a future self storage as sears is closing about 10% of it stores.

Sears announced a second wave of store closures on Wednesday, bringing the total number of closures scheduled for early 2017 to 150.

The company will shut down 108 Kmart stores and 42 Sears stores by April, according to an internal document obtained by Business Insider. Upcoming Store Closures Announced 1/4/2017
