Best Buy Opens 3rd TX Yardbird Outdoor Furniture Store in Frisco
A New Outdoor Furniture Brand From Best Buy Is Coming To Dallas: Called bird yard, it is a chain founded in Minnesota that opens a showroom in Frisco, at the Center at Preston Ridge, a center that also houses a Best Buy store. Aww, that’s nice.
According to a statement, the store will open in August.
The statement didn’t give an address, and a public relations person said they couldn’t provide the address until “later today,” but luckily the address can be found elsewhere online: it will be at 3231 Preston Rd. #3, which used to be a clothing store called Avenue.
Yardbird positions itself as selling high quality outdoor furniture “at a fraction of the industry standard”. They have also been known to make furniture from recycled plastic collected from beaches, waterways, and highly sensitive locations in the Philippines.
Not to be confused with Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, the Miami-based Southern restaurant chain, Yardbird’s merchandise includes patio sets, outdoor furniture, pillows, umbrellas, fire tables and blankets all seasons.
They opened their first store in Minneapolis in 2018 and were later acquired by Best Buy in 2021 as a way for Best Buy to expand its outdoor living collection. They have opened showrooms in Chicago, Minneapolis, Denver, Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington DC and Kansas City.
“Showrooms” because you can’t buy anything that is in the store. You can look and touch, and place your order which is then delivered.
They debuted in Texas in May 2022, with locations in Austin and Houston.
Jay Dillon, who co-founded Yardbird in 2017 with his father Bob Dillon, expresses confidence in Texans’ interest in their enduring mission, and that could be the case in Austin and Houston.
But Dallas-Fort Worth is not the most environmentally friendly metropolis. Hopefully DFW will welcome Yardbird more enthusiastically than it did TreeHouse, the latest eco-friendly showroom concept that opened locations in The Hill on Walnut Hill Lane and Plano in 2017 and then closed. in 2018.
“We chose to make a substantial investment in Texas with our latest showrooms because the community shares our passion for high-end design, sustainability and the outdoors,” Jay said in a statement. “They also face the same issues I do when shopping for outdoor furniture: sky-high prices, long wait times, and a lack of eco-friendly product options.”
