Dallas — This will be the retailer’s biggest growth year.
Dallas — The Container Store has announced it will open six locations in 2012, making this the largest real estate growth year in the company’s history and bringing the store count to 59 by year’s end. The new stores will be located in Arlington, Texas, Las Vegas, El Segundo, Calif., Peabody, Mass., and Westbury, NY, with a sixth location still being finalized.
The stores in Las Vegas and Westbury, N.Y. will be the first in those markets. For each new store, The Container Store will partner with a local nonprofit that will receive 10 percent of its grand opening weekend sales. In addition to store expansion, some of The Container Store’s other strategic initiatives for 2012 include a Dallas-area test of its new ATHome program, which will bring the retailer’s 34 years of organization expertise and product knowledge into its customers homes.
