At The Container Store, we’re working to build a business where everyone associated with it can thrive together! On July 1, 1978, we opened our doors in a small, 1,600 square-foot retail space in Dallas. Kip Tindell (Chairman), 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. Initial cash capital was provided by Garrett, his father, and John Mullen, who were founding directors, officers and shareholders of the company.
Today, The Container Store has grown to be the leading specialty retailer of storage and organization products in the United States and the only national retailer solely devoted to the category. With locations from coast to coast, our stores average 25,000 square-feet and offer more than 10,000 innovative products. We’re not just selling empty boxes; our time-saving solutions allow us to give our customers the promise of an organized life.
