Get ready to embrace your inner neat freak, Pittsburgh, because The Container Store is coming to the area.

Originally opened in 1978, the chain — known for its vast array of storage and organizational products — will host its grand opening Saturday, Oct. 8 at The Block Northway in Ross Township.

Formerly known as The Northway Mall, the renovated building also is home to the widely anticipated Nordstrom Rack, which opens Friday, Aug. 26. This is the first Container Store in the Pittsburgh area and the second in Pennsylvania, according to a Container Store press release.

The 24,000 square-foot-store will contain (see what we did there) more than 11,000 organizational items. The products will be neatly organized (of course) into 16 lifestyle sections, including closet, kitchen, office, laundry and more.

Shoppers also will be able to take advantage of “Contained Home,” the company’s new, personalized, in-home organization service. The Container Store also offers its free elfa design service, which pairs design experts with customers to create customized storage and organization solutions for the home or office.   

Here’s another reason to feel good about getting organized: The Container Store is donating 10 percent of its sales from its grand opening weekend to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Pittsburgh.
