Very few retailers get the credit for truly inventing a store type but Kip and Sharon Tindell, along with Garrett Boone and John Mullen, are universally recognized as the people who created The Container Store. In doing so, they were the first to operate a retailing business around the idea of organization and storage. TCS has had its ups and downs over the years — going public may not have been its smartest move — but the retailer has remained true to its roots and one of the best places in America to work.
Nothing Stupid about that at all.
