The year was 1978. Jimmy Carter was President of the United States. The Bee Gees topped the charts with "Stayin' Alive." The Dallas Cowboys defeated the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl. And on July 1, The Container Store opened its doors in a small, 1,600 square-foot retail space in Dallas.
Kip Tindell (Chairman and CEO), Garrett Boone (Chairman Emeritus) and Architect John Mullen opened a store offering an exceptional and eclectic mix of products devoted to helping people organize and simplify their lives. In doing so, they originated a completely new category of retailing, that of storage and organization.
Today, with locations from coast to coast, their stores average 25,000 square-feet and offer more than 10,000 innovative products to help customers save space and, ultimately, save them time. The store layout is divided into lifestyle sections marked with brightly colored banners such as Closet, Kitchen, Office and Laundry. Wherever you look in the store, there's a cheerful employee who's ready to help solve everything from the tiniest of storage problems to the most intimidating organizational challenges.
The Container Store offers a gift registry for life events such as weddings, graduations, housewarming, baby and more! When you register in one of their stores, you'll receive a Portable File Tote to help you stay organized during wedding planning.
This offer is only valid for residents of:
