I have older Store in Style cubes and was excited to find doors available since none of the local stores still carry this brand. Once i received the order, I realized that Store in Style must have made design changes and this door didn't fit out of the box. I had to remove a small section of wood at the handle side to allow the door to close. I also had to use gorilla glue to install the magnet.
An easy way to know if this will fit your unit out of the box, if you have others with doors, is to check the style of magnet. If the magnet screws in, you are good with this model. If your magnet has built in posts on the magnet plastic and it just slips in the prepared holes, you will need to cut the wood slightly and glue the magnet in place.
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I have 48 Store-in-Style cubes in my scrap room ... and I LOVE them. I have purchased a lot of them from Oriental Trading - now one of the only places to buy them, and at a good price. However - Creativity Inc, the company that made the Store-in-Style line, has been bought out. The new company seems to have made some "small" changes to this product. None of this is Oriental Trading's fault.
These doors are significantly different from the previous ones, although the picture on the box is the same. The first thing you notice is the nice metal handle has been traded out for a plastic version that is completely different and doesn't match the older ones, or the picture on the box. Next you notice that the label holder is much lower on the new one, which doesn't matter if you only use new doors, but definitely don't match the old ones. Also, the magnetic catch has been replaced with a cheap one that has to be screwed on, not the one that plugs into the pre-drilled peg holes (you have to drill your own starter holes).
The worst thing is, though, that the older doors are 15-1/8" wide, whereas the new ones are 15-1/4". The holes on the cube and the holes on the door do not line up to fit the door pegs on. If you don't drill new holes in the door, the edge of the door will not clear the edge of the cube when closed.
I am pretty handy, but to get this new door to work, I had to drill new holes in the door for the swivel/hinge pegs, drill new pilot holes in the cube for the magnet, buy a matching handle at the local hardware store, and put up with the door being a little tight because of the extra 1/8". I am debating on whether I want to try to fill the pre-drilled holes for the label holder and move it up so it matches my other doors. Maybe it would have been better to forego the door?
Once again - THIS IS NOT ORIENTAL TRADING CO's fault. They have done everything they can to make my order right, it's just that the product no longer works with the older cubes, and the picture is incorrect.
Cons: quality, not as pictured, doesn't fit cubes
No, I would not recommend this product to a friend.
