The Container Store selects signage solution from Episys

BY Marianne Wilson

Chicago — The Container Store has selected the Retail Enterprise Suite signage solution from Episys to produce high-quality signage and boost promotional effectiveness and customer service across its stores nationwide.

“We have always believed that our in-store product signage serves as a silent salesperson for our customers when they’re not working directly with one of our experts,” said Peggy Doughty, VP visual merchandising, The Container Store. “It is a huge focus and time commitment to ensure our signage is where it needs to be, when it needs to be.”

The Episys system will allow the chain to maintain the quality of signage it demands while also saving its employees significant time by integrating the entire production process – from request to formatting to printing, Doughty explained.

“The ability to batch process will also allow us even better quality controls and we love that the solution offers future enhancements as the needs of our business evolves with growth,” she said.

Derek Buchanan, CEO at Episys said: “We are pleased to have a solution that will enhance The Container Store’s commitment to delivering a high level of customer service through store signage. This will also result in a significant time savings for The Container Store and will allow them to ship signage to their stores the way they want to.”

Costco international exec says chain looking to open stores in Europe

BY Katherine Boccaccio

Issaquah, Wash. — Costco Wholesale Corp.’s international executive VP James Murphy said Thursday that the warehouse club operator is pursuing a European expansion program.

Murphy told Bloomberg that Costco is “interested in investing in the obvious four — Germany, Italy, France and Spain.” The company hasn’t decided which country would debut first and will probably open a store in the region “in the next couple of years,” Murphy said in the Bloomberg interview.

As real estate rates downwardly shift, Murphy said that Costco seems some opportunity, although weakened demand and austerity measures are concerns.

Turkey is another market that Costco is considering, Murphy said.

Earlier this month, the retailer announced it would buy out its Mexican joint-venture partner for $765 million, and that it would be better positioned to expand the 32-store base in Mexico.
