If you've been wondering who might be taking over that massive Children's Place store that recently shuttered at Third and Fairfax's Original Farmers Market, we may have your answer. A savvy tipster points us to this job listing that reveals The Container Store is looking to hire a management team for its new Farmers Market location, opening this August. YES.
Given that the storage and organization retailer's existing LA hubs in Century City and Pasadena are pretty ginormous, it makes sense for them to move into this space, which covers more than 20,000 square feet. Besides the fresh fare-filled Farmers Market and the adjacent Grove outdoor shopping center, The Container Store's new neighbors will include Cost Plus World Market and vegan fast food joint Veggie Grill.
