Lifetime Chairs at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Did you know that an estimated 2.5 million people go to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City each year? That’s roughly twice the population of Hawaii, and all these people are standing on the same street in New York City at the same time to watch the parade. That’s a lot of people all hoping to get front row spots for the festivities!

Because there’s such limited front-row space, people show up 3 or 4 hours before the parade starts to get the best views, which means a lot of time standing and waiting. This year, to make the morning more relaxing, we decided to bring Lifetime Chairs to some of these people who were anticipating the start of the parade. That way, they could have a comfortable place to sit and rest their feet while getting a great view of all the floats, dancers and balloons. All the people who sat in our Lifetime Chairs during the parade got great views of Miley Cyrus, Hello Kitty, Dora the Explorer and others.

When I was a kid, I got up really early to get a good view of the parade, and I definitely wanted a place to sit then, so it was exciting to put such a smile on people’s faces with chairs this year! I couldn’t believe how many people told us that they had already set up Lifetime Tables and Chairs for their Thanksgiving dinners that evening.

Once the parade was over, we took the chairs and went home to our friends and family. Since Lifetime Chairs are lightweight and they fold up, it was easy for us to get through the crowds. In fact, a few people even noticed how well we maneuvered and said they would definitely bring their own Lifetime Chairs from home next year!

Score! Basketball Hoop Fosters Positive Contact with Community Kids
One of the coolest things about working for a manufacturing company is that I get to make products that people love and use in their everyday lives. Having our headquarters in Clearfield, Utah gives Lifetime the opportunity to use our products and resources throughout the community. I am always happy when we can help someone out. We recently had the opportunity to do just that. This basketball story below is from our friend Anthony, from the Department of Corrections facility in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am grateful to Anthony for sharing this experience and hope they are enjoying the new basketball system! I bought a hoop in 2002 for our officers to use as a way to get in some exercise while at the office. We had no idea at the time it would transform into what it did.We used the hoop for some great interoffice tournaments w...
