As the 2018 year closes out and the 2019 year starts, many people are looking back at the success they've experienced. We here at STORExpress are no different. The 2018 year brought us new facilities; such as the first facility out side of the Pittsburgh Market, in Warren OH, as well as the continued construction of work spaces in the Turtle Creek property. STORExpress has been serving as the affordable self storage brand in Pittsburgh for over 20 years; we thought with 12 facilities that it was about time to honor the strongest serving store in our portfolio!
How did we decide who was the strongest serving store? We didn't want to just focus on revenue growth although, we know many other companies might. We wanted to focus on the entire package and for us that meant serving our customers and communities. We believe at STORExpress that when we stand with our community and serve them first, the community will in turn support us as well. The Murrysville location, located at 6335 William Penn Hwy, Murrysville, PA 15632: did just that!
Please help us in Congratulating our STORExpress Store of the Year managers, Property Manager, Theresa Bahnemann, and Associate Manager and Misty Ceresa.
Theresa Bahnemann has been apart of the STORExpress family for seven and a half years; starting as a floating assistant manager and quickly moved into the Property Manger position at the Murrysville/Export facility. The Murrysville facility has seen itself almost triple in size over the last seven years. This location has grown from 260 units in 2011 to almost 650 units throughout 2018. Compassion runs deep through out Theresa's roots, she was raised by four incredibly strong and compassionate women who were all nurses, her mother, grandmother, and two aunts. Theresa says that her favorite part of working in the self storage industry is helping people through what can often be an extremely stressful time in their lives.
Serving the community next to Theresa is our dedicated Associate Manager, Misty Ceresa. Misty has been a member of the STORExpress family since July 2016, and has recently graduated with her Masters degree in Psychology. Misty's favorite aspect of her work in the Murrysville location is that she gets to help people through life's transitions. With a Masters degree in Psychology, Misty's specialty is compassion.
We think what makes this team so strong is their ability to serve the community they have the honor of being a part of. Theresa and Misty have done multiple community outreach events, including collecting warm clothing for Operation: Warm Heart, Toys for Tot's, supporting the local football team through financial support, and even the local Historical Society with a climate controlled unit.
We here at STORExpress are so proud of the work that both of these Managers have done to support the community, and we are even more grateful for the way the community has rallied around us. We strive not just at this facility, but at all of our self storage properties to be your neighborly place for life's needed space.
