In 2007, we set out to find the perfect financial partner for The Container Store – partners who understood that our culture drove the value of our business, would embrace our commitment to our seven Foundation Principles and really give us “the keys to the car” so to speak in order to run our business in the values-based way we had been since 1978. We found that perfect partnership with private equity group Leonard Green & Partners (LGP). When our three LGP Board members heard that we had asked our employees to describe what The Container Store stood for, they just had to take part – and boy, do we LOVE what they had to say!
The Container Store’s employee-first culture, commitment to communication, innovation, teamwork, excellence and strong financial performance…this and so much more is The Container Store, and it’s priceless.
Unbeatable Customer Service
Unbeatable Financial Results!
To me, the Container Store represents opportunities for everyone:
1) An opportunity for employees to have a fantastic place to work and grow with the company
2) An opportunity for customers to organize their lives
3) An opportunity for vendors to grow their own businesses in a mutually beneficial way
4) And of course, an opportunity for shareholders to have a wonderful investment
