The Container Store
GFF began working with this Dallas-based specialty retailer in 2000 to assist entry into denser urban markets for which the standard 25,000 SF prototypical layout would not be an appropriate solution. As a result, The Container Store evoled into multi-level stores or configurations made more complex because of structured parking. In addition, GFF has assisted with finish selections, lighting, design and prepared finsh-out packages. The company’s goal to double the number of stores (from 25 to 50) during this period included multiple stores in Manhattan, San Francisco and Los Angeles, as well as stores in Washington, D.C., Boston, Seattle, Denver and St. Louis.
Ress Associates provided design consulting services for several of these “high brand” stores.
