The Container Store has finally arrived in Wisconsin! This weekend on September 12th and 13th, you can get serious about organizing and attend the store’s grand opening at Mayfair Mall. Doors open at 9 a.m. but I suggest getting there early, maybe around 8:30 because it is going to be crowded.
Yesterday I was able to attend a blogger preview at The Container Store which included a private tour. This store is big. Its’ 25,000 square feet is home to more than 10,000 multi-functional products.
I have never had the chance to visit one of their stores before. I think the closest one was in Chicago. A smile came over my face once I was inside those doors. There were beautiful containers everywhere. All lined up nice and neat. I loved it!
No other retailer offers the depth of storage solutions that The Container Store does. They offer over 300 food storage solutions, 70 styles of hangers, 50 types of laundry hampers, 750 organized office products, 400 solutions to organize a traveler and more.
There are so many different products to choose from. Once the store opens I know I will be spending a lot of time there. I need to get organized in every room of my house.
The Container Store has a once of a kind product collection that comes with an extremely high level of personalized customer service. Each full time sales person receives more than 266 hours of training in their first year. It is good to know that if I have questions, the employees are knowledgeable about their products. I have been to stores where no one knows anything about what they are selling and I haven’t returned.
Last night I was able to attend a grand opening that The Container Store was hosting. The party was in the actual store and snacks were served in containers! It was so cool to see them using their products like that.
There was lots of food, drinks and a live band. We had crab cakes, sushi, buffalo chicken bites, german potato salad, watermelon wraps, cake pops, cupcakes, ice cream and more.
I shared a quick video of the party on Instagram
I took my mother-in-law with as my guest to the grand opening party. She just might love containers more than me!
