Longtime Container Store employees get married at headquarters—with co-founder officating


DALLAS - The Container Store has long been lauded as one of the places to work—and now it looks like it’s also a great place to get married. The chain on Saturday celebrated the wedding of two 25+ year tenured employees—Greg Arechar and Lety Covarrubias—from its distribution Center, at its headquarters. Co-founder and chairman emeritus Garrett Boone, an ordained officiant, led the ceremony.

The Container Store’s atrium served as the backdrop for the ceremony and was outfitted with the retailer’s storage and organization products. The couple was married in front of the retailer’s product wall where white products were showcased with touches of blue.

Chairman, CEO and co-founder, Kip Tindell, and his wife, Sharon Tindell, chief merchandising officer, were in attendance along with hundreds of Lety and Greg’s colleagues, friends and family, including the couple’s children who served as best man and maid of honor. A collection of readings were delivered during the ceremony, including a reading by Tindell from Uncontainable, his new book focused on The Container Store’s culture.

“We feel special when we come to work and are so humbled by the outpouring of love and support,” said Covarrubias.

“Our love started at The Container Store and I wouldn’t want to have my wedding anywhere else.”

A reception followed in The Container Store’s on-site cafeteria – the Gumby Café. Gumby, The Container Store’s unofficial mascot (representing that you have to be flexible in retail) made a surprise appearance as the couple excited the reception.

The happy couple met in The Container Store’s Distribution Center in Dallas over 25 years ago.
