Earlier this year, we bought a GMC Acadia.  I LOVE it!  It was the first crossover SUV of its kind and now several other automakers have followed suit.  The Acadia is an SUV on the outside with the seating configuration of a mini-van on the inside.  Perfect for those of us who like the idea of a mini-van, but not all the psychological baggage that comes along with them!

Over the past few months, as friends see our vehicle they will often say comments like, “This reminds me a lot of a Saturn Outlook.”  Or, “Is this like a Saturn Outlook?”  Well, you know why?  They are the same car!  GM owns both the GMC and Saturn brand and, consequently, the Acadia and Outlook bascially come off the same production line.  (And, the Buick Enclave too!).  For various marketing and sales strategies, companies often make the same product with slight variations and sell them under a different brand.  We probably notice it most often in the automobile industry, but clothing manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, food manufacturers, etc. all employ these brand tactics.  And, yes, so does Lifetime. 

As Katie pointed out in her “What’s In A Name” posting, customers know and trust the quality and reputation associated with the Lifetime name.  The majority of our products are sold under the Lifetime brand.  However, I thought I would point out that we do have a few other brands that are still products made by Lifetime

So here’s our list…

Basketball system brands made by Lifetime
Lifetime
Mammoth
Atlas
Reebok

Table and chair brands made by Lifetime
Lifetime
Executive Choice

Playground equipment brands made by Lifetime
Big stuff


So, keep your eyes open for these brands when you are shopping.  Despite sporting a different logo, you can be assured our other brands are of the same high-quality as those with the Lifetime logo.  One important thing to note is that all of our sheds, trailers, and yard carts bear ONLY the Lifetime name…so don’t sacrifice quality and be fooled by imitations!

Oh, and here’s a little tip if you’re in doubt whether a product is made by Lifetime… all products made by Lifetime, regardless of brand, will have printed (in words, not a logo) “Manufactured by Lifetime Products, Inc.” on the box or label where the manufacturers’ name and address is listed.

Recreational Kayaking is Fun and Safe For the Family
Recreational kayaking is a fun and safe way for the whole family to enjoy the outdoors. Many people are a little apprehensive when they hear the word "kayaking." They imagine people dropping off of 20 foot waterfalls and paddling through big wavy rapids. But that isnt the only way to kayak. In fact, the largest segment of kayaking is within the recreational sector. What is recreational kayaking? Recreational kayaking refers to paddling on flat water lakes, bays, slow-moving calm river ways, and calm oceans. No rapids involved! Flat-water paddling is a safe way to enjoy the water. Another misconception about kayaking is the Eskimo roll, which is another aspect of kayaking that only applies to whitewater or sea kayaking. Recreational kayaks are not meant to roll and they are not designed to keep you inside if you should flip y...
Dear Family – a Letter from Dad
Bill Cosby had it right. Yes, many of us dads are the fun ones, the jokesters, and the dress up dolls. There are fathers all over the world who get things they cant use and . . . dont want. With Fathers Day coming up I wanted to offer some suggestions for things that Dad actually wants: Want Deck Box. Give dad a Lifetime Deck Box so he has somewhere to quickly put away all of the kids toys left on the lawn. Keep them safe so he doesn't hit them with the lawn mower anymore. So, really . . . its a gift that keeps giving. Dont Want Another light-up, pink, paisley, or superhero tie. Its just another burp rag for the baby to spit up on. Want New shed to store all the yard tools in.You know you all keep telling us to put the tools away.Dont Want Cute stuffed animal driver cover to hang on his golf bag. In case you havent forg...
