Retailer's growth strategy brings casual furniture into top metro areas

Georgia Backyard, Inc., a leading retailer of casual furniture and outdoor accents, opened its second American Backyard superstore in Southlake, Texas, a suburb of Dallas.

"Our growth strategy is to bring the very best the casual furniture industry has to offer to the country's top metropolitan markets," said Dean Luckino, president and CEO of Georgia Backyard, Inc.

"American Backyard pioneers a completely new approach to casual furniture retailing by placing customers in warm and inviting settings which they can envision creating by their pools, on their decks, patios or in their favorite casual getaway," Luckino said. The end-result is a retail model that represents a dramatic shift from traditional casual furniture retail methods. American Backyard offers an extensive selection of quality casual furniture, Sundance Spas, grills, gas logs and outdoor accents. "We have created a warm and inviting retail environment that appeals to all the senses, wherein consumers can both imagine and experience the possibilities," Luckino said. "There is nothing more rewarding for us than to see the smile of satisfaction on a customer's face. This is a fun industry. We love doing what we do!"
