“Fill the other guy’s basket to the brim. Making money then becomes an easy proposition.” This statement from Andrew Carnegie, industrialist and philanthropist, has become the Golden Rule of our business and is our third Foundation Principle. With this sentiment guiding us, The Container Store has been successful in creatively crafting mutually beneficial relationships with our vendors by doing everything possible to truly “fill their baskets to the brim.” We know that in return, our business and our bottom line will benefit as well. Read more about this Foundation Principle and hear from Brooke in our Buying department about how it allows our company to offer products not found in other retailers. Make a comment and tell us what you think for a chance to win one of five $50 Store More Cards we give away each month!
