"Crate & Barrel first opened their doors in 1962 as a family business. Husband and wife team Gordon and Carole Segal, and one (yes, count them...one) eager sales associate who was enthusiastic about their vision. One can only imagine the office parties they had. Table for three, please.
Fast forward 50 years (and did it ever go fast), today's Crate & Barrel family has grown to more than 150 stores and over 7,000 associates nationwide, and, they might add, still growing."
