backyards inc name change.jpgThings are starting to look a little different along the Wasatch Front in Utah, and I'm not just talking about the fresh layers of snow on the mountains.   We are excited to tell you that Backyards Inc., the Lifetime factory retail store, is changing its name to "Lifetime Store".

Start watching for the name change to take place over the course of the next four months with updates to all outdoor signage to be completed by February 2011.   For those of you who don't live in Utah, you'll see a change, too.  Our online store will soon share the Lifetime Store name to give customers a simpler shopping experience.

So why did we make this change?  Most importantly, for you - our customers!  Even though Backyards Inc. has always been owned by Lifetime, there was no easy way for our customers to instantly recognize Backyards Inc. as Lifetime’s factory retail store.  This also meant a lot you didn't know you can find full line of Lifetime products inside. So, by renaming the store and using the same Lifetime logo that's on all of our products, there is now an obvious connection between our products and our stores.  It's still the same great store, just a new name.

If you've never been to a Backyards Inc. store (now Lifetime Store), this is the perfect time to make a visit to find some great deals on holiday gifts!  We have six stores located throughout Utah in Clearfield, Draper, Orem, Riverdale, Taylorsville, and Salt Lake City.  The Lifetime Store showcases products made by Lifetime Products, including folding tables and chairs, basketball equipment, outdoor sheds, playground equipment, kayaks, and soccer goals. Because it is a factory store, the Lifetime Store carries both new and seconds, or blemished, of Lifetime products.  In addition, the Lifetime Store is the only Utah dealer to carry a full line of Backyard Adventure playsets!

What's Wrong With This Picture?
Michael’s last posting talked about all of the basketball hoops he passed on his drive home. So, I started looking around during my drives as well. Normally, this Lifetime365 blog has been featuring upbeat, inspirational stories. But, the overall purpose of a corporate blog is to be open and honest. So, sometimes, it needs to serve as a reality check. Unfortunately, instead of counting how many basketball hoops I passed on my drive, I noticed how many people set up their basketball hoops improperly. I pass this particular basketball hoop in the photo on my way to take my son to preschool everyday and it just makes me cringe. It reminds me of one of those children’s coloring book games where you are supposed to find and circle all of the things wrong in the picture. This photo has so many things wrong, it’s too scary to count...
Three Dreaded Words... Back To School
I picked up my sons registration packet for kindergarten yesterday. (Still cant believe my baby is going to kindergarten. Sniff, sniff. But, thats a story for another day!) Geez, how many forms can they make us fill out? So overwhelming and seemingly redundant in many ways. Amongst the huge stack of papers, guidelines, and forms was the obligatory school supply list. Wow, so much for just needing to buy a backpack, pencils, and notebook anymore, huh? The kindergarten supply list has nearly 20 items on it! Crazy! Personally, I was one of those nerdy kids that always got fired up about back to school time because, being the organizer that I am, I couldnt wait to pick out all of my new school supplies, especially my new Trapper Keeper! Ironically though, my husband came home from the store just the other day and said he saw the...
Small Space Entertaining
Living in a small space doesnt mean you cant entertain family and friends comfortably. With a bit of thought and preparation, you can host enjoyable gatherings no matter the size of your house or apartment. In a small space a simple approach is best, so take note of these 8 tips to get you up and running in no time. Un-clutter: Move furniture and large plants to the sides of your rooms to create more floor space. Keep it simple by removing any clutter, knick-knacks, etc. to give a more open feel. Use as much natural light as possible. Open up: If you have outdoor space like a terrace, patio, deck or small backyard, use it. Leave your patio door open and set-up a seating group or table and chairs to increase space. Fill it up: If your place will hold 10 people, invite 16-18. It is unusual for every invited guest to be able ...
