According to a 2013 survey by Huffpost, worry that one's home isn't clean or organized enough was a top concern and source of stress for respondents.
According to Simply Productive reporting in the summer of 2033, there are concrete benefits to having an organized home, including improved focus and less anxiety.
Floridians who want an organized home or office do have a specialized store to help them achieve this. Unfortunately, the same store has been named at "risk" for bankruptcy.
About The Container Store And Why It Was Called At "Risk" For Bankruptcy: According to the company's website, The Container Store first opened its doors in 2007, and it currently offers organizing and storage solutions to help people create a functional home and office.
The Container Store thrived during the pandemic when people were at home and wanted to organize their spaces. However, in the second quarter of 2023, the Container Store's sales were down around 19% from the second quarter of 2022, according to Yahoo Finance.
In the summer of 2023, the Container Store announced that it was laying off part of its staff, according to Retail Drive.
According to Retail Dive, The Container Store received a FRISK score of 2 by Credit Risk Monitor, which means that the site believes that The Container Store could have a 4-9.99% chance of filing for bankruptcy in the next twelve months.
The Container Store in Florida: According to the company's website, there are currently 6 Container Stores in Florida, with locations in Tampa, Miami, Hallandale Beach, Orlando, Palm Beach Gardens, and Boca Raton.
If reviews are any indication, Floridians enjoy having access to The Container Store. For example, Google reviewers for The Tampa Store give the Tampa location 4.4 out of 5 stores. Many people complimented the customer service and the vast selection offered. Those who took off stars tended to note the expense of some items.
Here is a sample of a part of a good review from someone named Jenni:
"This store has everything - from containers to erasers and post-it notes. The store was clean, and the associates were nice, friendly, and helpful. You can get lost in this store and spend way too much time in your thoughts coming up with new ways to organize."
