Organize.com was founded in 1998 by President, Terry Shearer as a retail store named Organize Everything. His strategy and business plan was to open a convenient retail store to shop for storage and organization solutions. There were no other stores of its kind within 50 miles when the small business owner opened the doors of a 9,000 square foot retail store in Riverside, CA. It was one of the first independently owned stores in Southern California dedicated to selling Storage and Organization products to help customers organize and simplify their lives.
