The Container Store, the nation’s leading retailer of storage and organization products, will open its newest location on Sept. 14 at 2130 Exeter Road in Germantown beside Trader Joe’s.
The store will be the retailer’s 93rd store nationwide and the second location in Tennessee.
The 19,300-square foot store will feature thousands of multi-functional and innovative storage and organization products designed to help customers maximize space and make the most of their home. A highlight of the store will be The Container Store Custom Closets, an upscale line of luxurious custom-built closets.
The grand opening weekend will begin at 10 a.m. with the arrival of The Container Store’s Super Fan – a lucky winner who will win a $250 gift card, a goodie box filled with products, and get to be first in line on Saturday.
The excitement will continue throughout the weekend with prizes every hour on the hour, including $1,000 toward a Custom Closet Makeover complete with four hours of in-home organizing. Ugly Mug Coffee will also be serving coffee Saturday and Sunday morning to customers attending the opening weekend.
“The Container Store is excited to bring our custom closets and unique organization and storage solutions to the Mid-South,” said John Brown, general manager for The Container Store. “Our team of experts in the Memphis area is ready to begin serving our customers and becoming an active part of the community.”
Memphis area residents can also support the community in giving back opening weekend. The Container Store is pleased to announce its charity partner, Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, who will receive 10 percent of grand opening sales.
Additionally, they are working on several organization projects within the hospital to help create efficiencies for the staff and volunteers.
“On behalf of our patients and families, I want to thank The Container Store for supporting Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital,” said Le Bonheur President Michael Wiggins. “We are proud of the work we’ve done caring for children in our community and we realize there is still work to do to help our children grow up healthy and strong. We’re ready for new challenges and opportunities because we have their support. The investment in us will improve the lives of children and families in our region.”
