Some 'storage shops' here sell bags and boxes for storing stuff in.. not 
space for stuff to be stored in.
  'Storage facilities'   .. for storage of stuff would be the 
description here..

Note the page mentions 'reliable storage'  .. I'd think the reliability 
would not be assessed by OSM... nor that kind of information put in the 
data base ... too many problems with it. I personally have a tendency 
not to map those places with a poor reputation...
