The former Fred’s location Armuchee has sold and look for 24/7 storage from Brian Spears there soon. He earlier won a special use permit to reshape the interior of the former retailer at 4111 Martha Berry to allow climate-controlled storage in Armuchee. The application cites “climate controlled storage is in high demand and short supply in this community.” It won approval from the planning commission in October. Built in 2006, the 18,000-square-foot building originally was listed for $795,000; Dan Carlton at Toles, Temple & Wright had the listing. Steve Graves of Hardy Realty handled the sale.
