New initiative offers superior in-home organizing services, as well as a line of luxury custom closets

COH-9.1-hirez-01CHICAGO, IL (September 5, 2015)— Chicago Organized Home has been selected by The Container Store as an independent representative to help them roll out their latest service, Contained Home in four Chicago-area. Contained Home features in-home organizing services, as well as the retailer’s new luxury custom closet collection, TCS Closets.

Through this new partnership, Chicago Organized Home will offer professional in-home organizing for closet systems and other areas such as home offices, garages, kitchens, playrooms, and storage facilities. Other offerings include moving and coordination services and as-needed household management. Chicago Organized Home will represent Contained Home for the following stores: Chicago-North Avenue, Chicago South Loop, Northbrook and Oak Brook.

Chicago Organized Home evolved as a sister company to Chicago Anytime Assistants, a flexible, anytime-you-need-it, personal assistant and concierge service. Founder and President Pam Sherman and her team have been helping Chicago area residents become more organized for over five years.

“Our relationship with The Container Store has existed for years because their best-in-class products have helped us better serve our clients’ needs,” states Pam Sherman, Founder of Chicago Organized Home.  “Our service offerings are very strongly aligned, as we have shared values to create a genuine connection with our clients and build a lasting relationship with them through helping to simplify and organize people’s homes and lives, and we are thrilled to be working with them.”

Offerings at Chicago Organized Home will focus more on getting people’s homes and lives more organized and under control while Chicago Anytime Assistants will maintain their errand and as-needed personal assistant services.

“We are excited for the growth of our business,” commented Sherman. “Our new partnership with The Container Store will allow Chicago Organized Home to focus on organizing people’s lives while not giving up the services our clients have depended on us for through the years.”

“Contained Home is our most requested service – in all our 37 years.  Our customers just want someone they can trust to ‘do it for them’ – organize every area of their home, soup to nuts – which makes their time starved, busy lives more efficient and enjoyable,”  said Melissa Reiff, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Container Store.  “As the pace of modern life accelerates and people realize that being organized is not a luxury anymore, but a necessity, making our customers more productive, more relaxed, and happier is, of course, our number one goal and our Contained Home service along with our relationship with Pam and Chicago Organized Home will certainly help do just that for our busy, Chicago area customers!”
