A Mega Container Store Opens this Weekend
Looking for some springtime organizing inspiration?
You might want to head to Southcenter Mall this weekend for the grand opening of The Container Store (Tukwila, 2437 Southcenter; 1.888.CONTAIN). Not only will you be able to roam the brand-new 25,000-square-foot space (10 a.m.–9 p.m., Sat., 11 a.m.–7 p.m. Sun.) containing some 10,000 oh-so-smart organizing items (such as 170 styles of hooks!) to help snap your space into shape, but there will be hourly give-aways all weekend long, including a $1,000 Elfa makeover installation. The mega store itself is helpfully organized into 16 "lifestyle" departments, covering everything from closets and laundry to small-space needs.
Plus, it's all taking place during The Container Store's "spring organization sale," which continues through May 4th.
