M-93 Storage opens for business in Grayling
Dan Sanderson | Staff Writer
The owners of a well-established Grayling business have branched out to start a new venture, which will allow people to store their boats, recreational vehicles, and other belongings.
Jamie and Cameron McClain are opening up M-93 Storage, LLC, located at 9898 M-93, which is next to the Denholm Family Chiropractic.
There are 48 units ranging 10 feet by 10 feet up to 20 feet by 30 feet.
“We are doing moveable walls inside them, so we can customize them to people’s needs as well,” Jamie said.
The couple purchased the property about a year ago and received approval for the zoning of the project from the Grayling Charter Township Planning Commission. They broke ground in mid-June.
They decided to pursue the project because there is a demand for more storage units due to economic development and more people coming to the area.
The couple is in the process of acquiring McClain & Son Construction, which was founded by Cameron’s father, Scott McClain, in 1979.
“In the construction world, we see a lot of people in need of storage with new builds,” Jamie said. “We decided we would be able to build them a home and help store their things while they are building.”
Once the first two storage units are filled, the couple plans on building larger storage units to keep boats and recreational vehicles.
“That would be the next phase of our project,” Jamie said.
The two buildings are each 4,800 square feet and there is the potential for four more builds that size, which would be on the 10-acre site.
The business will solely be owned and operated by Jamie and Cameron.
“There will be some maintenance there, but not much day-to-day operations,” Jamie said.
McClain & Son Construction has workforce of between 10 to 12 employees who built the storage facilities.
“It’s been great,” Jamie said, regarding the business. “We’ve been very fortunate to be able to sustain through the ups and downs of the economy.”
Ten of the storage units have already been leased.
“I think once it’s open, then people will be calling and hopefully we can fill it up and continue on with the next phase,” Jamie said.
