  • Stimulus Loan Could Fund SS/Retail Space in Birmingham

It's good that a vacant building will have a tenant and have long thought that such properties are a good fit for storage but this doesn't pass the smell test, not with so many developers and owners begging for, but not receiving, financing. Just how connected is the B'ham developer?

      Other things to do with a Storage location. Spending more time at the new location, so made it more homey. Flowers in full bloom. Eggplant, peppers and tomatoes starting to come in.
