Tupperware Now Available at Your Favorite Department Store
The container brand that Americans have loved for the last 76 years is now more readily available and Iowans will see it on store shelves beginning next week.
Earl Silas Tupper developed the plastic for containers in Leominster, Massachusetts in 1938, and by 1946, Tupperware was born. The company's products have been keeping foods fresh ever since.
In 1951, Tupperware Parties Inc. was created by Brownie Wise, the vice president of marketing for Tupperware. Tupperware parties followed and the popularity of the products exploded across the nation.

In a Linkedin post, Tupperware CEO Miguel Fernandez said, "... we’re officially entering retail in the US with the availability of Tupperware products in Target® stores nationwide and on Target.com. At Target, brand fans and newcomers alike will find options not only optimized to prevent food waste, but with the expert, timeless design we’re known for. "
Tupperware products are available at Target.com, with prices ranging from $7.99 for a single container to $79.99 for a 30-piece set. They can also be purchased in Target stores across the nation.
This isn't the first time Tupperware has been sold at Target. These photos are from a store in California in 2003.
Fernandez says Tupperware parties will continue but with the longtime product line now available at Target, in addition to Amazon, I bet it'll be much more difficult to get your friends to attend a party at your house.
