The Container Store

The Original Storage and Organization Store

We can’t contain ourselves! In 1978, we opened our first store in a tiny, 1600 square foot space in Dallas, Texas. Most of the products we sold came from commercial or industrial manufacturers, and had never been sold in a retail environment like mason's tool bags as overnight bags, egg baskets as carryalls and wire leaf burners as toy barrels.

Today, with locations from coast to coast, our stores average 25,000 square feet and showcase 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 always someone in a blue apron who's ready to help solve everything from the tiniest of storage problems to the most intimidating organizational challenges.
