“We can’t contain our excitement! The Junior League of Las Vegas was honored to be chosen as the nonprofit partner for The Container Store’s opening in Las Vegas on May 12th. As soon as we told our members back in February about the partnership, there were shrieks of joy! Most people living in Las Vegas did not grow up here, so they moved from another city, where they likely shopped at The Container Store. Even our husbands got into the spirit! For them to get excited about a retail store…well, you know it had to be pretty special!
The Private Preview Party was even better than we could’ve hoped for. There was a line forming before the doors opened, and we counted more than 3,000 attendees! I came back to shop on Grand Opening morning and couldn’t believe how many customers were in the store! While the $16,500 donation was the incredible icing on the cake, the Junior League of Las Vegas was thrilled to be part of the grand opening and we are now loyal The Container Store shoppers…for life!!!”
