Today we announced an exciting new addition to our Best Buy family! We have acquired Yardbird, a leading direct-to-consumer company that specializes in premium outdoor furniture. For years we’ve helped our customers elevate their living spaces – from offices to kitchens to living rooms – and this exciting partnership will only create even more opportunities for Best Buy customers to amp up their outdoor living space.
Yardbird offers an incredible selection of outdoor furniture, from dining sets and lounge seating to fire tables and accessories, with seven showrooms across the country. They’re also our Minnesota neighbors; based out of St. Louis Park, Minn., Yardbird was founded by Minnesota natives Bob and Jay Dillon.
One of the most exciting aspects of welcoming Yardbird into the Best Buy family is their commitment to sustainability. Like Best Buy, 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.
