The Container Store Planning Germantown Location
By Patrick Lantrip
The Container Store, a national retail brand that specializes in storage and organizational products, is planning a Germanton location near Trader Joe’s.
The Texas-based chain is seeking a sign variance from the Germantown Design Review Commission for a store that will be located at 2130 Exeter Rd. in the Germantown Collection Shopping Center.
The Container Store will join Trader Joe’s in the new-look Germantown shopping center that was in and out of the spotlight during an on-again-off redevelopment after longtime anchor tenant Kroger left the property.
However, the project appeared to stabilize after Savannah, Georgia-based Wicker Park Capital Management, doing business as 2130 Exeter Road Holdings, took over the project from previous developers Centennial American Properties in 2017.
In December 2017, Wicker Park purchased the parcel of land outright from previous owner Robert H. Schwab for $8.1 million.
The Germantown DRC will review The Container Store’s sign package request during its Thursday, July 12 meeting.
