Extra Storage Solutions for Retailers

PODS® portable storage containers utilizied for efficient seasonal fixture changes by The Container Store® 


The Container Store®, originally established in 1978, is the original storage and organization store, featuring spaceand time-saving solutions in every area of the home, including the kitchen, bathroom, closet, office and garage. The company has grown to become the nation’s leading specialty retailer of storage and organization products.




Every few months, The Container Store removes the fixtures in the center of its stores to make room for new, oftentimes seasonal, campaign fixtures. Due to the lack of on-site storage, The Container Store needed a solution for storing campaign fixtures during brief periods of displacement.

In the past, The Container Store used its own shipping and storage methods. Seasonal campaign fixtures were shipped back and forth from its 76 stores nationwide to its distribution center in Coppell, Texas, a costly, time-consuming and logistically complicated process.




PODS provided a turnkey solution enabling The Container Store to more efficiently store and manage fixtures during seasonal campaigns. Scheduling the delivery and pick-up of a PODS container via a PODZILLA® patented lift system—designed to minimize the shifting of contents— was as easy as making a phone call.

Containers were dropped off directly to parking lots at The Container Store locations nationwide, making it easy for store employees to load and unload the fixtures at their own pace and as their schedules permitted. Fixtures were stored securely and conveniently on-site in containers.



PODS increased store efficiency, improved merchandise accessibility and streamlined operations. The Container Store experienced a significant savings on transportation and storage costs. With the success of their initial PODS experience, the company decided to make the switch from their previous transportation and storage methods to PODS portable storage containers. Essentially PODS for Business was a one-stop-shop for all of The Container Store’s fixture storage needs.
