The centre boasts 344 indoor self-storage units, ranging from a compact 15 sq. ft to a spacious 200 sq. ft, alongside 60 outdoor containers with convenient drive-up access.


Tim Aspey, Managing Director of Porterstore, commented, "The rising demand for quality self-storage solutions over the past five years has been remarkable. Adlington, with its dynamic community and excellent transport links, emerged as the perfect location for our new venture. We're excited to offer top-notch storage options for both personal and business needs."


The Adlington site, once a symbol of industrial might, has been transformed into a modern storage haven. Features include round-the-clock security, eco-friendly solar panels, electric vehicle charging points, and additional amenities like free parking, Wi-Fi, a meeting room, toilets, and a self-service kitchen. For added convenience, the facility is equipped with large passenger and goods lifts, and the team is on hand to assist with loading and unloading.
