See Mommies With Cents disclosure policy for more details.The Container Store is opening a new location in Tukwila, WA this Saturday and I had the opportunity to tour the new store and learn a little about the company. I was pretty impressed!
The first Container Store opened in 1978, the year I was born! (I’ll let you do the math on that one!) Over the years they have offered a solution based approach to retail by committing to employee development and training. Every full time sales person receives more than 263 hours of training in their first year compared to the retail industry average of 7-10 hours. While you’re shopping, don’t be afraid to ask an employee for help, that’s what they’re there for and they know their stuff!
The average size of a Container Store is 25000 square feet and offers more than 10,000 multifunction and innovative products. Each store carries over 300 food storage solutions, 750 organized office products, 45 types of laundry hampers, 350 travel products, 200 different types of hangers, 200 different types of hooks and so much more!
Just step foot in one of their stores and you’ll be inspired to not only get organized, but to do it in style.
If you live in the area, you won’t want to miss the grand opening. Here’s the low down:
- Store hours are Monday-Saturday 10am-9pm and Sunday 11am- 7pm.
- 10% of Grand Opening weekend sales will be donated to Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Centers — there’s no cap!
- Prize giveaways will happen every hour including a $1000 Elfa Space Makeover on both Saturday and Sunday
- The first 100 social check-ins on both Saturday and Sunday will get a $10 Store More Card. Just visit the prize tabe to show your post/tweet and redeem your card!
I couldn’t stop drooling over the gift wrap aisles:
