DALLAS–The Container Store, currently with 42 retail outlets across the country, announced it will open five new stores this year—including one that opened over the weekend— and will seek to open an additional 24 stores over the next five years.
The announcement was made as the home storage retailer celebrated its first store opening in Little Rock, Ark., on Saturday, March 8.
The other stores will be located in Plano, Texas; Scottsdale, Ariz.; Edina, Minn.; and Cincinnati. The company said it expects to generate around 300 jobs through the openings.
Each of the new stores will exhibit 14 lifestyle departments, the retailer said in a statement, including closet, kitchen and office.
