A new business has moved in at the old Kmart property on 68th St. near US-131 in Byron Center.

U-Haul acquired the former Kmart building, at 701 68th St. SW in Byron Center, in March.

U-Haul Moving & Storage of Byron Center is currently using a temporary showroom at the site with trucks, trailers, towing equipment and moving supplies.

The long-term plan is to adapt 50,000 square feet of the 115,440-square-foot building into an indoor self-storage facility. It is expected to be operational by spring of 2020.

The large building, plus large parking area that goes with it, makes a good combination for the space required to operate a truck rental and indoor self-storage facility.
