The Container Store – Sneak Peek Into New Orlando Location


    By Sunshine Baker


    Orlando shoppers have been all in a frenzy for months now, eagerly anticipating the opening of The Container Store. The organizing mecca’s first Orlando location opens right across from Millenia Mall this Saturday, April 27.


    An organized home is essential for many homeowners in Orlando. Knowing where to find everything can save time and money, and the Container Store is the ultimate source for education and supplies to accomplish that goal. The Container Store’s most popular product is the elfa line of custom closet solutions, and they offer free closet design services at the Orlando store. My favorite was the Little Black Dress Hanging Jewelry Organizer- a perfect way to keep all of my jewelry visible and untangled!


    The Container Store held a media preview and pre-opening cocktail party on April 25, and it was absolutely amazing. Partygoers were in awe of the amazing array of products, and The Container Store spared no expense in presenting an incredible event. Puff N Stuff caterers served an array of delicious food, all served in Container Store items, and live music by Blue Stone Circle kept guests dancing late into the night! Local politician Bill Segal said, “This is the finest grand opening I’ve ever been to. More energy than I’ve ever seen.”


    The Container Store’s Grand Opening celebration this Saturday and Sunday will include giveaways every hour, on the hour, and two lucky shoppers will win a $1,000 elfa Space Makeover! Plus, it’s all for a good cause, because the Container Store will donate 10% of grand opening weekend sales to Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies. The first 100 people to check in on Facebook each day will receive a $10 giftcard redeemable immediately. It’s sure to be Orlando’s biggest gathering of highly organized homeowners, so don’t miss it!
