Best Buy recently announced that they have acquired Yardbird, a leading direct-to-consumer company that specializes in premium outdoor furniture.
For years the big-box retailer has offered furniture for office space to kitchens to living rooms – and this new partnership will create more opportunities for customers to amp up their outdoor living space.
Yardbird offers a wide selection of outdoor furniture, from dining sets and lounge seating to fire tables and accessories, with seven showrooms across the country. They are based out of St. Louis Park, Minn. Yardbird was founded by Minnesota natives Bob and Jay Dillon.
Yardbird, like Best Buy, is commitment to sustainability. They strongly believe in bettering our environment, and do so by using eco-friendly materials from plastic that would have otherwise ended up in the ocean. The company has also partnered with carbonfund.org to offset its carbon footprint, has meaningfully reduced its packaging material usage and uses recycled sources for some of their packaging materials.
Best Buy will begin to sell Yardbird products online in the coming months. Yardbird will also continue to sell its own selection of outdoor furniture on Yardbird.com and in the company’s showrooms across the country. Founders Bob and Jay Dillon will remain in leadership roles at Yardbird.
