Elfa Ends Individual Dealership Program in U.S. and Canada

COPPELL, TX — Elfa products will no longer be offered through individual dealers in the United States and Canada, but will continue to be available exclusively through The Container Store chain, said Audrey Robertson, Public Relations Director for The Container Store in Coppell, TX. The company has approximately 80 dealers.

“Dealer sales have become a very small percentage of our overall sales, totaling less than $1 million a year,” Robertson said. “We have notified our dealer network and will be working with them for the next six months as we transition out of that supply channel.”

Elfa products are manufactured in Sweden. The Container Store bought the company in 1999, and Elfa products remain one of the retail chain’s best-selling items.
