The Container Store

Big Moment in History: First NYC Store!

Big Moment in History: First NYC Store!

In November 2003, The Container Store opened its first store in New York City! We were all so excited to be launching in the Big Apple! We chose the perfect location – on Sixth Ave. between 18th and 19th streets in the wonderful Chelsea neighborhood. To this day, this continues to be our overall highest-volume store across the country.

The same year, we also launched a revolutionary new way to shop in Manhattan – our Go ShopScan & Deliver service! Here’s the thing – most people in Manhattan don’t own cars, and taking home a full elfa closet on the subway presents quite a challenge. So, we began offering a way for our customers to come in and shop for what they need, scan the items, and go! Then, we deliver all of the items to the customer anywhere in Manhattan – same day if they want it – for just $25.

We’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of Scan & Deliver, and it continues to be a major hit!!
