MINNEAPOLIS — Outdoor home furnishings brand Yardbird is upping its store count in a big way this spring with 11 new stores set to come online across the country.
The standalone showrooms will be located in Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Long Island, Milwaukee, Raleigh, San Antonio, San Francisco, Tampa and West Palm Beach, joining the Best Buy-owned brand’s existing 14 stores. The store rollout begins later this month and will continue through June.
“We love showing customers what Yardbird is all about. By nearly doubling the number of showrooms, we’re able to showcase exactly what sets us apart from other outdoor furniture companies,” said Jay Dillon, co-founder of Yardbird. “We are excited to grow the Yardbird brand and reach more people who are looking for high-quality products for their home.”
Yardbird showrooms offer selections of sectional sofas, dining sets, lounge chaises, fire tables, umbrellas, accessories and more. In-house designers also can help customers decide on which furniture options are best.
Yardbird furniture is available on its websites and showrooms, on BestBuy.com and at more than 50 Best Buy stores across the country including its Experience Stores.
“Yardbird is the perfect addition to Best Buy, especially for customers who are already coming to us to improve their outdoor living spaces,” said Blake Hampton, category officer at Best Buy. “We’re thrilled to introduce Yardbird to these new cities and offer more customers a place to come see the latest in outdoor furniture and get expert advice while they shop.”
Yardbird makes its products with the environment in mind. Plastic that would have otherwise ended up in the ocean is used in select furniture pieces. Yardbird also partners with carbonfund.org to offset its carbon footprint, reduces the amount of packaging materials and uses recyclable packing materials whenever possible.
