MARIETTA, Ga., July 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The U-Haul-owned Marietta Shop at 543 Cobb Parkway S. closed its doors on April 19.
The maintenance shop had serviced equipment since 1998, according to U-Haul Area District Vice President Doug Weston. Twenty-five Team Members were let go as a result of the closure.
Local U-Haul Companies are always exploring opportunities for growth as they pursue means to better meet the needs of customers, but sometimes find it necessary to close or relocate facilities, or cease certain business operations at locations.
Reasons for closures can include: long-term strategic plans; physical plant limitations; shifts in demographics; trends in migration; expansion of the U-Haul neighborhood dealer network; and proximity to other new or existing U-Haul stores or shops.
Regional U-Haul equipment is now being serviced at the new West Atlanta Repair facility at 120 James Aldredge Blvd. in Atlanta, which opened on April 22 at the site of a former Gannett® printing facility. The shop also serves as home to regional U-Haul marketing company offices.
