“The partnership with Dormify allows us to offer stylish bedding, headboards, throw blankets, and décor directly to our customers in a way The Container Store has never done before,” said Chief Merchandising Officer of The Container Store, Stacey Shively. “We have an increased focus on complementary products to the storage and organization offerings our customers love, and this year college shoppers can find everything they need at The Container Store to set up functional college living spaces that are uniquely their own.”
