    I received information that there was a tragedy at River Toys Storage in needles and that people who store their boats there should make arrangements to remove their boats from storage. Contact their office for more information and regarding the status of your boat and if it has any effect on your storage.

    To ease your minds, this has nothing to do with damage or fire or anything like that.


    That's all the info I have at the moment.

    If that was my boat and I had to pick it up, my next stop would be to Billy B's new storage facility :thumbsup

    Out of respect of the people involved, I didn't want to post additional details about what I heard.

    Shinto is right. I just heard the news myself. Out of respect for the family we will not say what happened. I have heard from a friend that they want to close up shop now

    Why close it, maybe sell it, someone could buy it and help them out. Depending on what happened this could be a totally insensitive post. But storage facilities seem to do ok out there.

    Hopefully everything works out. I don't think a bunch of people blowing uontheir phones or pulling boats out is going to help matters but I get the concern of having a boat there.

    Sad deal but isn't it a bit of a knee jerk reaction. Hire somebody.

    Sounds like they got it taken care of. There is an update a couple posts up.

    Definitely seemed weird that the place was imploding.

    They work fine as long as you don't need them there on time or daily 😊

    Yeah, but it doesn't take a master's degree either.

    I'm curious. Did the family want everyone to remove their boats? If not, seems like a message like this is a good way to destroy their business and pour salt on an already very big wound.

    That's too bad. Steve was a cool guy. Sad to see this happen, but he seemed to have some demons haunt him with personal life problems. Wish he could have worked it out or gotten some help.

    This is un related to what happened there with the manager, but I was discussing this with a friend. He tells me that they were planning to slowly shut the place down as storage leases terminated when the renewal dates came up. They were planning to turn the place into a grow operation (which is booming right now in Needles). This plan was in place before the manager killed himself.

    I was told the family wanted to close the business so they asked to spread the word.

    Property is cheap out there but the electric bills would be profit killers in the summer. If you can't keep the rooms cool enough, the weed will suck. Unless they're talking about extracting?

    Seriously, if that place is for sale, I want to know!!! $$$

    Is it individual garages or shared building?

    That is what I was told too. My source is the guy who is going to turn this into a grow warehouse. They have already started construction

    There must be something appealing about doing it in Needles , because there are massive buildings going up everywhere as grow operations. We're talking 60,000sqft buildings. It's already earned the nickname "weedles"

    Yep. I got a bid invite for a grow building in Needles. Couldn't believe so I called my buddy who is on some building commission in Needles and he said the same thing you posted.

    King City, Ca did the same thing. From what I understand just a Zoning or allowance for weed growing in certain parts of town. Hopefully the tax dollars can re-pave that POS Needles HWy:rolleyes . Getting enough Power from the grid for all the demand was the problem last I heard..
