To celebrate the grand opening of our newest storage location serving the West Las Vegas / Enterprise, Nevada area – we’ve harkened back to our “Spotlight” series, and take the opportunity to tell you a little bit about the area surrounding.
Las Vegas certainly needs no introduction but we’ll introduce it, anyway.
Las Vegas – a city now known world-wide for its gaming and gambling industry, officially incorporated in 1911, just a year after Nevada actually outlawed gambling. But that was not the first of the seeming contradictions that are connected with the city. Going back further – to 1855, the area was first settled (and subsequently abandoned), by a group of Mormons who likely would never have imagined that its future nickname would become “Sin City”. Then, in the early 1930’s the desert city became home to workers building the huge Hoover Dam, which would create the nearby Lake Mead. A huge body of water in the midst of the arid valley.
The dam project workers (predominately single men), were catered to with nearby gambling establishments and bawdy entertainment. This likely cemented the cornerstones of the industries that would drive Las Vegas growth for most of the next century.
But continuing with its contradictory nature, Las Vegas and the surrounding area has grown to a population of over 2 million people – fueled not by a transient population, but by families seeking the space to live at an affordable price (at least a relatively affordable price). Las Vegas is now an attractive place for both growing families and retirees to call home.
With so many families, retirees, and industry workers throughout the area, Dollar Self Storage has seen its own growth – now having four self storage locations to serve the Las Vegas and Henderson area.
The newest location, West Las Vegas – Enterprise, is located west of the city center near the community of Enterprise. It offers a full range of storage options including air-conditioned units, interior units, and drive-up units.
Our first “Las Vegas” location was opened a number of years before that and is situated in North Las Vegas.
Additionally, Dollar Self Storage also has 2 self storge locations in the Henderson area – storage at 1475 American Pacific Drive, catering to the Henderson and Green Valley area; and at 20 S. Arroyo Grande Blvd.
But whatever the reason you find yourself in the Las Vegas area, if you need some additional space to store your items – call us or stop by and talk to our friendly and knowledgeable staff. It’s the best bet you’ll make all year!
