The Container Store has arrived in Las Vegas! Last week I was excited to attend a blogger preview event at the gorgeous new store in Town Square. This was a dangerous proposition for me given that I moved into a new house just six months ago and have whole rooms that need to be contained like the office, the kitchen, and girls’ rooms. I spent thousands of dollars on my mental shopping trip during the store tour. Even with 80% of the items in the store coming in under $20.
A brief overview of The Container Store revealed employees are so important to the company that they come before the customers. This has made The Container Store one of Fortune Magazine’s 100 Best Companies to work for in 2012. Of course, happy employees generally translate into amazing service and happy customers. This wonderful service includes being able to purchase your items online and then have them delivered directly to your car at the store so you never have to get out of the car. Employees who work the floor can help you organize ANYTHING. Take your problem area into them and they will help you figure out exactly how to contain yourself, your kids, and your house. Love that.
Right now there is a sale going on in the Travel Section. So if you need to know how to get your kids packed up for overnight camp (like I do), or if you’re doing a lot of business travel, or even for-pleasure travel, The Container Store is where you want to be.
Even if you don’t feel the need to be contained at the moment, stop by the store for the ideas. It’s filled with creative and pretty ideas. And sometimes an idea is all we need.
Here are a few things at The Container Store that I want. Now.
Life would be so much easier if it was organized in these pretty containers below on a beautiful desk space like the one above. Sigh.
My life would be transformed if I reached into a closet like this every morning. I’ll take the shoes and the clothes, too.
I’ve found the solution to my constant tripping-over-shoes dilemma:
How do you keep yourself contained? I’d love to hear some of your ideas!
I was not compensated by the Container Store for this post, although I was treated to lunch, a bag of goodies, and a store preview. All opinions are entirely my own.
