Our site The Grainstore has been through quite a transformation or “makeover”as some might say. We purchased it in 2017 when it had been a derelict, unloved former industrial site for quite some time. Since then, piece by piece, it’s been rebuilt from the ground up into a bustling community of independent businesses from the Dorset area.

Demand for space has grown quicker than the Grainstore itself and we’ve been thinking hard about how to expand further to meet the number of enquiries we get for workshops, offices and storage units.

At the end of 2023 we completed our penultimate project; to convert the first floor of our renovated “Tall Building” into a brand new indoor self-storage facility similar to the likes of bigger brands like Big Yellow. In recent years more & more people have relied on flexible indoor storage to help them reclaim room in their life, and our new storage units, which range from cupboard-sized to garage-sized help us to cover all the requirements for what potential customers might need.

There’s still more to come!

Into 2024 and we are on target to complete our final project of converting the “Long Building” into further flexible space by the end of the year. This is where YOU come in. We would love any businesses looking for units of 500ft2 and over to contact us about creating your bespoke Grainstore workspace. We are also creating further smaller offices and expanding our inner Forum area.

It’s exciting for us to have this level of flexibility right now and we can’t wait to see what new businesses join us on site!

Here are some of the businesses who have already joined our community:

The Washing Basket – Laundry Service

Pamper & Play – Hair & Beauty and Children’s Role Play

Chilli Gorillas – Ice Baths

The Pantry @ The Grainstore – Café
