GRASONVILLE — Saturday, September 19, JPN Self-Storage held its Grand Opening. Owner Gurjit Nijjar, longtime resident of Centreville, named the new facility after his 2-year-old daughter, Joban, using her initials, JPN. The facility is located at 107 Hissey Road, next door to the Grasonville Wawa. Open 7-days a week their hours of operation are: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. — 5 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. — 3 p.m., and Sunday, 9 a.m. — 1 p.m. If you rent a storage space, you have 24/7 access to the facility.
Among those present for the ribbon cutting were members of the Nijjar family, personal friends, and business associates. Nijjar’s mother, Baljinder Kaur, performed the honor of cutting the ribbon with everyone applauding.
Nijjar is a graduate of Queen Anne’s County High School, Class of 1998. The Nijjar family has owned the truck stop in Centreville for nearly 30-years, located just off Route 301 at the intersection Route 304, 610 Ruthsburg Road, Centreville. Two years ago, the family purchased the Best Western Hotel located along Route 50 in Easton. Continuing the diversify their business operations, they purchased the site where the new self-storage was to be built this past April and immediately began construction.
Nijjar said, “We are diversifying our business interests as we feel you can’t invest all your efforts in just one business during these quickly changing times.”
He credited E.P Cronshaw, owner of Shore Lumber, located at Glendale Avenue in Centreville, for helping provide needed construction materials for the quick readying of the Grasonville facility.
