The Northshore Mall store will showcase more than 10,000 innovative products to help customers save space and, ultimately, save them time. The store layout is divided into lifestyle sections marked with brightly colored banners such as Closet, Kitchen, Office and Laundry. Wherever you look in the store, there’s always someone in a blue apron ready to help solve everything from the tiniest of storage problems to the most intimidating organizational challenges. Customers receive unparalleled service, along with fresh ideas and a very interactive shopping experience. The store will be easily accessible to shoppers living in the outlying Boston suburbs looking to organize any office, closest, coat rack, desk drawer and more.

“When we open a new store, we look for a location dense with our time- and space-starved target customer coupled with a collection of synergistic retailers. We have found that in Northshore Mall,” said Kip Tindell, Chairman and CEO, for The Container Store. “We’re thrilled to bring our unique concept and employee-first culture to our new customers in the area.”
