Happy Pride from Downtown Self Storage! 🏳️‍🌈

Downtown Self Storage is truly honored to sponsor Pride Northwest, supporting the LGBTQIA+ community! For over thirty years, we’ve served the Pearl District as the local go-to for self-storage and an enthusiastic sponsor for events like Pride and Art in the Pearl. Events like Pride bring people together and play a crucial role in fostering community. We are excited to be part of something so fantastic!
