GODFREY - Big Tee’s Self-Storage, located at 2735 W. Delmar in Godfrey, will be hosting a grand opening soon and the new business will be a place many view as perfect to store belongings, along with a location that can’t be beat.

The new self-storage business is right off Illinois Route 3, 3.1 miles west of Eppel’s Pantry and Deli and near the Sunset Bar and Grill, Dollar General and Melville Dairy.

Terry Barton, owner, said the business is a great storage solution for the communities of Alton, Godfrey, Wood River, Bethalto, Brighton and the surrounding areas.

“We rent out storage units of varying sizes: 5 x 10, 10 x 10, 10 x 20, 10 x 25 and 10 x 30,” Barton said. “Unlike most self-storage facilities, customers will have 24-hour access.”

“Every renter will have a code to enter and exit the facility,” Terry Barton said. “Their access is from dawn to dusk and access upon request after dusk. Convenience of location with ease of access was paramount in selecting the land.
