I guess it all depends how much money you are planning to spend and how detailed you want to get with containers, racks, etc.
You can easily drop $500 and still not have a closet done.

Some very cool stuff but way way way overpriced. I have bought a few things there when I needed something very specific but for general baskets and bins it is super pricey. Super cute but pricey.
They have a lot of their items online so you could explore first to see if it is in the ballpark of what you are looking for.
I guess they don't have anything "out of the ordinary" for my love of organizing. I may go anyway, I'm interested to see what they have. A whole store dedicated to containers sounds inspiring.

I would like to get to a container store sometime because they're the only place I know of for sure that has a FlipFOLD Laundry Folder.

Some of the stuff can be a little overpriced, but if you love looking at containers, it is the place to be. I can actually spend hours just browsing
I also type in 'elfa' on cl a lot and see what comes up.

If I don't have something specific in mind (and even when I do), I can spend $80-100 very quickly.

That said I purchased nearly all of our containers at Wal-Mart. They simply had the best price and also surprisingly selection and even quality of containers. The crazy thing was different Wal-Mart stores had sharply different selections, so I had to visit a few stores to get all the sizes I wanted.
I bought nearly 100% clear containers to minimize the need for labeling and even with labels it makes it much easier to manage the contents without opening the bins.
For most containers I have found Sterilite to be the most cost effective and nice solid containers, Rubbermaid is a close second.
Target is MUCH more consistent from store to store, but I found them more useful for the smallest containers and a few specialty ones.
Good luck finding your containers, they have been a HUGE improvement to storing and managing our things, especially for the kids. They LOVE clear bins for their toys and crafts!
