Going to Frager's is recreational/educational as much as it is practical. And once you've gone to 18" wide aisles and started hanging significant amounts of crap from the ceiling as well, I wouldn't be surprised if they have as much inventory as a Home Despot.

It also occupies, as some have noted, the entire second floor of most of the rowhouses on that block. Thus far I have visited Lawnmower Balcony (over Ladder Courtyard,) Plexiglas Basement, and Trash Can Salon, but there's much much more....also I'm not sure how nonpublic the second floor is (just nonobvious.)

Actually, remember that the containers are designed to be stacked 6 - 7 units high and then put on a ship that could face storm conditions, without further lashing, attachment, etc. So..they bolt together in a pretty serious way onto dedicated fittings; I imagine the requirements for shipboard usage would accomodate a significant seismic rating.
