The Container Store, the nation’s leading retailer of storage and organization products, will open its 92nd retail store and first Oklahoma location in Oklahoma City on Saturday, Sept. 15, at 5644 N. Pennsylvania Ave.


“Oklahomans have been traveling to our Dallas stores for years to accomplish their storage and organization projects,” said Levi Beroth, area director for The Container Store. “It is finally time to bring our unique solutions directly to them and our team of experts in Oklahoma City is excited to begin serving our customers and becoming an active part of the community.”


The newest addition to The Container Store will be 18,000 square-feet and include thousands of storage and organization products in 16 lifestyle sections, as well as unmatched service to help shoppers accomplish projects and maximize space. The Grand Opening Weekend will begin Sept. 15 at 10 a.m. with the arrival of The Container Store’s Super Fan and will continue with prizes every hour on the hour, including a $1,000 elfa Closet Makeover giveaway with installation and The Container Store’s in-home organization service, Contained Home, on both Saturday and Sunday.

Oklahoma City residents can also support the community in giving back opening weekend. The Container Store is pleased to announce its charity partner, Oklahoma Zoological Society, ZOOfriends, will receive 10 percent of grand opening sales.
