The Container Store will open its second location in the state this spring at the Southcenter mall.

The Dallas-based organization retailer will have its Tukwila store on the second floor of the mall, near Sears, in the site of the old Borders bookstore. Its first location is in Bellevue.

The 25,000-square-foot store will feature more than 10,000 products, including more than 750 organized office products, 45 types of laundry hampers and 70 styles of hangers.

The grand opening is planned for April 12-13. That weekend, the store will donate 10 percent of its sales to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, according to a company news release.

Fortune magazine has named The Container Store, founded in 1978, as one of its best 100 companies to work for for the past 15 years. The company says it pays its salespeople 50 to 100 percent higher than retail industry average.

The Tukwila location will employ about 40 people. Go to for more information.
