Happy news, neat freaks: The Container Store will unveil its first Pennsylvania store location during the spring of 2014. The home organization retailer will occupy 24,000 square feet of new construction facing Dekalb Pike (Route 202), in front of The Court at the KOP Mall. Right now, the closest place to shop The Container Store's storage and organization solutions (racks, shelving, hooks, hampers, buckets, bins, baskets galore) is at the retailer's location in Cherry Hill, NJ.
The KOP location scheduled to open on Saturday, March 8, with a weekend-long grand opening celebration that promises prizes on the hour. The retailer will donate 10% of sales made that weekend to the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House.
