Official Grand Opening Toronto-Leaside

You’re Invited! Apple Self Storage Toronto-Leaside Official Grand Opening


Apple Self Storage Toronto-Leaside will be holding its official grand opening on Friday, March 10th from 12pm – 3pm. The converted facility located at 20 Research Road in East York, Toronto, ON has been welcoming residents through its doors since its completion mid-2022 but we are beyond excited to be able to invite everyone to join us for a few hours of networking, food and beverages.

The grand opening is the perfect opportunity for residents, small businesses and entrepreneurs to explore the facility to see the services that could benefit their storage needs and beyond, as well as explore the unique features of this historical building that were kept in place as part of Apple Self Storage’s adaptive reuse initiative. Plus residents can meet the staff at the location, who are well-educated to help find a tailored self storage solution unique to each person as we understand that there are many reasons, both personal and business-related, that bring them to us.

Apple Self Storage aims to give back to the communities it is involved in whenever possible and as part of this the Toronto-Leaside location will be running a food drive the day of the grand opening to support local food banks. Any attendee that brings an item for the food drive, will be entered into a draw for free storage at the Toronto-Leaside facility. Apple Self Storage’s way of saying thanking you for helping support the community.

Apple Self Storage Toronto-Leaside has been featured in multiple articles due to its historical relevance and involvement in adaptive reuse. Customers that use the facility can enjoy these architectural features in addition to services offered.

Food and beverages will be served throughout the event, and anyone in attendance can enter the raffle to win the door prizes available. Please RSVP to the event by emailing
