The peak of consumer sophistication. This is a chain that sells containers and stuff for storing and organizing.That means: mostly boxes. It is very interesting to observe how they have developed that simple concept in order to turn it into something appealing. You don't feel like you are buying a $2 transparent make-up plastic box (empty, of course), but a gift for yourself. This is the sort of store that only exists in the US.
Yes! There is nothing else quite like the container store! I'm an organization junkie and this is where I get my fix!! Please note however, that they are much much more than "mostly boxes". They sell a fantastic closet organization system called Elfa, and the reps in the store will help you plan all your closets for free!! Think of this place as being Muji on steriods!!
The store is divided into sections according to room (i.e. kitchen, bathroom, office, garage, etc.) and has items to organize everything from CD's, to cookies, to documents, to laundry, to you name it.
