The 68th annual Mother Goose Parade will be held in El Cajon, CA on Sunday, November 23rd. This annual weekend event features a craft fair, carnival, and parade. The Mother Goose Parade is the largest parade in San Diego County, and the largest of its type west of the Mississippi.
As the parade route runs along Main Street El Cajon, traffic around our A-1 Self Storage location on West Main Street will be impacted. Main Street will be closed to vehicle traffic at noon on Sunday, and re-opened sometime after 3 PM. You will be able to access our facility by foot during this time, so our office will remain open for business normal hours.
When traveling in the area, please follow all detours and traffic control. Allow for extra travel time due to the delays expected.

We are proud to support the Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Laughter Tour!
The Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Laughter Tour kicked off it’s inaugural event on October 24th in San Diego, CA.

All services are provided at no cost, and the comedy event was free of charge to uniformed military personnel.

Adding shelving is a great way to give you more storage space. Shelving can be installed to existing cabinets, or be bought free standing. Shelving can be added in a closet, kitchen, garage, or just about anywhere in your home. Small plastic or fabric totes can be added to the shelves to help organize items.
