The Container Store has made it to Orlando! I don't know how else to say that but you should know I'm doing a dance over here. I had a chance to visit the store on Thursday for their blogger preview and left there with a headache. Like a good headache. One of those oh-mi-gaah-this-is-what-I've-been-looking-for headache. There are tons of awesome things about this place. The big thing that stood out were the employees. You know that's a big one for me. Â And then? I was in shock and awe over...THE CONTAINERS!
I took down these notes because I was like whoa!
First, did you know that each employee has a total of 263 hours of training in the first year?! That's like a gazillion times more than most retailers who do what? Ten hours maybe?
- They have 120 different food storage solutions
- 45 different types of laundry baskets (and seeing as I have a "situation" with laundry, I may need to go back for some)
- 129 different trash cans (including recycling bins which I totally need because I have nothing in the kitchen except the side of the trashcan and a supermarket bag)
Oh, oh! You can order stuff online and select to to click and pick up AND THEY'LL BRING IT OUT CURBSIDE! This is a mami perk for real!
Now do you understand why I had a headache? Oh and I saw the perfect chef's cart that I can fit in my little nook in the kitchen. Â Suffice it to say that I will be heading back.
The other cool thing is that The Container Store has partnered with Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies and will donate 10% of Grand Opening Weekend sales from Orlando to this wonderful nonprofit thatâ€™s such an important part of the local community.
So, what are you waiting for? Head on over ASAP! And tell me what you got!
PS: they have all kinds of giveaways this weekend. Good luck!
