A place to buy a place for everything

The Container Store opens Saturday in Peabody

“Our stores are doing better than they ever have,” he said.

While The Container Store is new to the North Shore, professional organizer Nancy Black, the owner of Organization Plus in Beverly, knows it well.

“I’ve known about The Container Store for years because I learned about it through the National Association of Professional Organizers,” Black said.

She has been buying products from the Newton and Natick stores for several years, “because they have biggest selection of organizing products anywhere,” she said.

“The store is huge,” she said. “It can be overwhelming to people, which is why I’m going to be offering field trips to The Container Store.”

Black said it’s best she work with a customer in the store to get the right items.

The question is, why does one have to be organized in the first place?

“If you are organized,” Black replies, “you have less stress in your life.”

There is another reason to shop the grand opening: Tindell said 10 percent of the sales on this opening weekend are being donated to the Boston Children’s Museum.
