We were incredibly honored to recently host Aki Ohyama from one of our longest-term vendors, IRIS, at our headquarters in Dallas. During Aki’s visit from Japan, he presented The Container Store with a beautiful painting as a heart-felt thank you for what our employees and customers have done to raise money for tsunami relief efforts in the company’s hometown of Sendai.
We delighted in hearing how the donation raised from the sale of our glorious Clear Storage Boxes will be used to rebuild Sendai’s concert hall. Everyone at The Container Store feels such pride, passion and love for the entire IRIS community and what they’ve been through. And we were so happy to do this small thing to help.
