The message below was emailed to all “Lee’s Wine Storage” locker owners on 4/18. I texted Lee this morning after I received the e-mail (sender prefers to remain anonymous) and the text shows as received, but I have not yet heard back from him. If I get anymore information I will share it immediately in the comment’s section. I am only reprinting this to help get the word out for locker owners to get their wine moved before May 6 or face a loss.

Re: Wine Storage Facility Closure-Abandoned Wine
Dear Wine Owner:
As you may know, unfortunately, Yoon Lee, the lessee and operator of the wine storage facility “Lee’s Wine Storage” at 26340 Diamond Place, Unit 110, Santa Clarita, California (the “Storage Facility”), was evicted by CanAm Holdings, LLC, which is the owner of that property.
As a result of that eviction, any wine and other property you have been storing at the Storage Facility must be promptly removed. The business is no longer in operation and all wine lockers and contents are being removed. Any questions regarding your lease and/or charges must be directed to Yoon Lee at 661-993-2838 or 661-259-7754.
Pursuant to the California Civil Code, any wine or other property which you have been keeping at the Storage Facility is considered to be abandoned property. However, you have the opportunity to reclaim your wine within a reasonable period of time.
Unless all such wine (and any other property) belonging to you is reclaimed on or before May 6, 2014, it will be disposed of at public auction as required by Section 1988 of the California Civil Code.
Because of this unfortunate situation, CanAm Holdings has contacted “Storage Center of Valencia” on your behalf to inform them of the business closure so they may make provisions to accept as many of Lee’s Wine Storage customers as possible. They may be contacted at 661-263-1999.
A copy of the “Notice of Right to Reclaim Abandoned Property,” required by Section 1985 of the California Civil Code, is provided.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
