The Container Store has announced that it will visit the New York Stock Exchange Friday, Nov. 1, to celebrate the company’s completion of its IPO and first day of trading. The ticker symbol for the company is “TCS.”
Kip Tindell, Chairman and chief executive officer, joined by members of The Container Store’s leadership team including Melissa Reiff, President; Sharon Tindell, Chief Merchandising Officer and Jodi Taylor, Chief Financial Officer, will ring the NYSE Opening Bell. More than 100 employees, vendors, family and friends of the retailer will join on the trading floor.
The celebration is being webcast live to The Container Store employees at headquarters, its 63 store locations throughout the U.S. and at elfa in Sweden. Store locations in New York, Dallas, Chicago and Los Angeles will broadcast the event via green screen photo booths allowing Container Store employees and the public the opportunity to have their personal “NYSE bell podium” photos celebrating The Container Store’s IPO day.
Additionally, the celebration extends outside the NYSE building where a large ‘Contain Yourself!’ banner adorns the NYSE facade along with the retailer’s iconic ‘Contain Yourself’ shopping bags floating in front of the NYSE. The Container Store’s ticker symbol, TCS, constructed of blue dairy crates, white cylinder trash cans and platinum elfa mesh drawers, will also be on display beneath the NYSE facade.
