Your vocabulary is a bit off since from an API point of view, storage
areas don't have threads, the execution environments in workers and
windows do.

But if your question is weather one worker can open the storage named
"foo", while another window or worker is holding the storage named
"bar" open, then the answer is yes.

I have a different association for 'with', especially in context of
JavaScript, so I prefer 'get'. But others feel free to express an
opinion.
