TUCSON, Ariz., July 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul of Southwest at 32 W. Ajo Way will be closing the doors to its retail showroom and ceasing other store operations in the coming weeks.
Plans call for the facility, which has been serving the DIY moving public in Tucson since 1976, to be leased to a new tenant.
U-Haul is transferring the possessions of its self-storage customers to a new Company-owned and -operated store less than two miles away at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Bravo Park at 1265 E. Benson Hwy. In addition to self-storage options, customers will find an expansive showroom featuring a full line of moving supplies, boxes, hitches, towing accessories, bike racks and more to fill the void left by U-Haul of Southwest.
As a result of U-Haul of Southwest closing, five U-Haul Team Members will be let go.
Local U-Haul Companies are always exploring opportunities for growth as they pursue means to better serve the needs of customers, but sometimes find it necessary to close or relocate stores. Reasons for closures may include: long-term strategic plans; physical plant limitations, including insufficient square footage; shifts in demographics; trends in migration; expansion of the U-Haul neighborhood dealer network; and proximity to new or existing U-Haul stores.

U-Haul products are used daily by First Responders; delivery companies bringing needed supplies to people's homes; small businesses trying to remain afloat; college students; and countless other dependent groups, in addition to the household mover.
