The backpack drive at South Street Self Storage was a success! Because of the Long Beach, California community, we were able to provide backpacks full of school supplies to 30 local school children.
“We collected folders, notebooks, pens and pencils and filled the backpacks,” Tony Tinajero, South Street Self Storage property manager, said. “I feel like it helps keep kids in school. Sometimes some kids are not as fortunate as others and don’t have a back pack. And it helps them stay in school, you know?”
Thank you to everyone who donated during the last month! We are looking forward to helping even more children go to school next year!

SELF STORAGE MILESTONE: HAPPY 9-YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO ANTONIO TINAJERO
Here at South Street Self Storage, we know our success is due to our wonderful team. The care they give our renters is unparalleled and we want to highlight their milestones along the way. Below is an interview with Long Beach, CA team member Antonio Tinajero, who is celebrating his 9-year anniversary with StaxUP Storage.
You can find Antonio at South Street Self Storage in Long Beach, CA.
Colby: What year anniversary will this be for you?
Tony: This is my ninth year.
Colby: Year nine! Wow. How did you start working in self-storage?
Tony: My wife was working in the industry and on my days off I would go in and help her. She would work four days a week for this other company and I’d help on my days off. The district manager of that company asked me what I was doing here. I said I’m just helping out. He said well wouldn’t you like to get paid?
Colby: Nice! You’ve been with the company for nine years. What’s the best thing you’ve learned while working there?
Tony: Different things. Great opportunity to meet people of all walks of life. People who are sometimes going through a difficult path, just listening and helping them out.
Colby: I’ll bet you have some interesting stories in that regard. Do you have a favorite self storage story that you like to tell people when you’re chatting about work?
Tony: One comes to mind. A current customer of ours, I won’t use his name, but anyway, when he first came around, it was toward the end of the day, we were locking up and turning off the lights. He came in and was very rude and impatient to say the least. I stayed late and helped him out. After the rental, I was approached by some team members who asked why I helped him when he was acting so mean. I said I understand that life isn’t always easy and he was probably going through a difficult patch. The following Monday he came in and made his second payment and he apologized and recognized his behavior and he thanked me for the opportunity to be a customer. He was a totally different person after that; very grateful. He was going through something difficult and I didn’t disregard him. He’s the only guy I know who comes in with a smile when his rate increases.
Colby: If you can make someone smile over a rate increase you’ve done a pretty good job I think.
Tony: You can’t forget the humane side of things. People go through rough patches, rough times. It’s ok to listen and not push people away.
Colby: So, outside of work, what are some of the hobbies you like to do when you’re not at the facility?
Tony: I like to walk in the park and the track. Biking, running, anything competitive. Automotive racing, motorcycle racing, you name it.
Colby: Nice! What’s your favorite thing to do in the city? If I was going to be in the area for a day or two, what would you recommend I go check out? What’s a fun spot?
Tony: There’s a nice walking trail by the beach. You can bring your bike. Gorgeous views of Encino Hill. The second Friday of every month, Bixby Knolls always has something going on.
Colby: Hey on that same note, what’s your favorite restaurant close by the facility?
Tony: I am a big seafood kind of guy. Mariscos El Perihuegute has authentic Mexican seafood.
Colby: Tony thanks so much for doing the interview, is there anybody you’d like to give a shout out to?
Tony: Yes, let’s give a shout out to my team. Cassie, Brian, Julie and Chad. They’re all willing to help with whatever questions I have, the corporate office and whatever issues we’re having. They’re great human beings and always willing to go the extra mile no matter what the task or what the issue is.
Colby: Thanks again Tony! I’ll look forward to doing this next year for your ten-year anniversary!
SELF STORAGE MILESTONE: HAPPY 3-YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO KASSIE REYNA!
Here at StaxUP Storage, we know our success is due to our wonderful team. The care they give our renters is unparalleled and we want to highlight their milestones along the way. Below is an interview with team member Kassie Reyna, who is celebrating her 3-year anniversary with StaxUP Storage.
You can meet Kassie at our South Street location in Long Beach, California.
Colby: Hello, Kassie! What year anniversary will you be celebrating this month?
Kassie: It’s gonna be three years this month.
Colby: Have you always been at the same location?
Kassie: I’ve been here all three years.
Colby: Take me back a few years ago to when you were first applying for the job. What was it about StaxUP Storage that stood out to you when you applied?
Kassie: It was my Aunt Sandra. She no longer works here, but her husband Tony is actually the manager here now. They had a position available and asked if I was looking for a job. At the time, I was going to school full time in Santa Monica, so I applied. I thought it would be fun to work with both of them. This is actually my first real job, so I didn’t know what to expect. It’s been a great experience so far. It’s helped me get out of my comfort zone, because at first I was really shy and kind of afraid of the customers! It’s been a nice way of getting out of my shell and helping me communicate better.
Colby: Was there anything about working in storage that was kind of a surprise to you?
Kassie: Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect, so not really.
Colby: What advice would you give somebody if they were applying there and also didn’t have any self storage experience? What would you tell them?
Kassie: Patience! You deal with lots of different people. Also, take care of one person at a time. I used to get overwhelmed if the office would get swamped and I was working alone. Just take it one customer at a time.
Colby: Are there any stories that stand out to you over the last three years? Anything you tell people when they ask what your job is like?
Kassie: Lots of people think I have an easy job and get to sit in the A/C all day. I tell them that there is always something that needs to be done, whether it be filing, making phone calls, getting ready for events. I’ve been helping with finding ways to raise money for our events.
“What can I say? Kassie is a great human being. She has grown to her position and is a valuable asset to South Street. My experience with Kassie has also being a learning one. I’ve learned not to take things too serious and pace myself.”
Antonio, South Street Self Storage Manager
Colby: Oh cool, so doing some marketing?
Colby: It seems that a theme with this company. That there’s some freedom to think outside the box and take some ownership of your own location more than maybe some other places.
Kassie: Yes, and another thing I really like is the first Saturday of every month, we get to go volunteer at a local women’s shelter.
Colby: Nice! That’s a great way to give back to the community and I’m sure they’re always in need of some extra help.
Kassie: We do drives for them here. We’re currently doing a spring drive and a healthy food drive. We collect donations and take them to the shelter.
Colby: I guess that’s a nice segue to step outside of storage for a bit. Tell us about yourself, what are your hobbies, what do you like to do when you aren’t at work?
Kassie: I love to spend time with my family. I’ve recently gotten into hiking. I go to Griffith Park every Sunday to hike lately. I also love going to the beach and relaxing.
Colby: Tell me a little about the area around the facility. What’s your go-to restaurant that’s close by? Is there a good local place you’d recommend.
Kassie: I usually bring my own lunch to work, but there’s a place called New Wave Restaurant that I’m going to for the first time later today! It’s like an 80s theme place.
Colby: NIce. You’ll have to let us know if it’s a fun place worth recommending! Final thing we ask, is there anybody you’d like to give a shout out to?
Kassie: For sure. I’d like to give a shout out to Julie for giving me the opportunity and taking a shot on the shy girl. Also to my Uncle Tony and my Aunt Sandra.
