Do you think The Container Store knows we're their customers?

I've talked about gathering up some of local enthusiasts and visiting one of the local branches of The Container Store to talk about enclosures. I didn't realize it was already happening enough with individuals to catch employee attention!

Thanks,

The last time I was at the container store the cashier went, "I think I've help you before....these are for something alive, aren't they?" OMG YES THEY'RE FOR TARANTULAS! hahaha the lady behind me was like WTF. We all three ended up having a nice discussion and I totally whipped my phone out and showed them pictures like "that mom". I loved that they both loved what I was doing with them lol

I did one better than TCS, as they are only a distributor, need to go to the source.

I called AMAC up over 5 yrs ago, and spoke to the product manager.

They are well aware of exotic pet owners, including T owners, using their boxes for homes.

They have a few ideas to make their own, but it’s not a priority for them currently.

But with the right motivation, ie quantity of boxes, they might move on it faster.

He and I talked about all sorts of things from design, branding and distribution.

They were going to do a deal with a major T dealer but that fell through as the T dealer didn’t really move on it according to him.

Well that’s sounds like an interesting conversation!! Who knows maybe I’ll send an email or leave a few reviews to add a little more motivation!!

that’s be cool if they did do anything officially connected to the hobby. Who knows maybe one day!!

I now use old deli cups or jelly bean jars. People are scared of the animals so people regret asking me why I wash and save my containers after I buy tacos. Amac should make branded tarantula and invert tanks. But if they do this, they would be super expensive just like all the other tarantula tanks that are pre made.

Reviews by themselves don’t do too much at distributor sites, esp if they are positive.

Go to the source as I did. Someone could see this through if they have the time. I didn’t have the time.
