Brian Morrison, vice president of visual merchandising for The Container Store, will be a featured speaker at this year’s Collaborate event.
Morrison will share insights into the 40-plus year journey that has allowed The Container Store to grow into the storage and organization products brand leader. Now 90 stores strong, Morrison oversee the presentation of products, in-store campaign support, store layouts as well as development and support of the visual sales teams in each of its stores. The Coppell, Texas-based chain’s stores average 25,000 sq. ft. and offer more than 10,000 products all in the name of helping its customers live a more organized life at work and home.
Morrison will be sharing insights into its award-winning (honored by the Retail Design Institute) “next generation” store opened last June in Dallas and how technology and vendor partners have played a central role in organizing its future.
