Lifetime Celebrates Local Dick’s Sporting Goods Grand Opening

dicks1.jpgCan you make 121 free throws in a row?  We know someone who did!  During the Dick’s Sporting Goods Store grand opening event in Layton, Utah, we had a customer at our booth make 121 free throws in a row to set the record and win a Lifetime Basketball System! We also had a child make 95 free throws in a row.  Pretty impressive numbers.
 
The free throw contest was just one of the many activities Lifetime sponsored at the new Dick’s Sporting Goods in Layton, Utah during its grand opening the weekend of September 16-18.  Since Dick’s Sporting Goods sells our products, they invited Lifetime to take part in the celebration.  This was a great community event that brought out hundreds of people in our local area.  The three-day event started with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday morning and had a steady stream of customers throughout the weekend.
 
Dicks3.JPGWe loved being able to chat and meet with so many of our customers and local community members.  We even met the person who bought the very first Lifetime Basketball System sold in the new store!  We set up a Lifetime booth outside in front of the store and held lots of fun activities and giveaways for Lifetime gear and products.  There were lucky winners who walked away with free Lifetime Basketball Hoops, Lifetime Double Shots, a Lifetime Youth Kayak, and a Chute 98 Kayak (a sit-inside kayak Lifetime makes exclusively for Dick’s).  We even had the Utah Jazz Bear at our booth for two hours on Saturday entertaining visitors with silly string and autographs  - some on the kids’ foreheads :).
 
Dicks2.JPGOverall, it was a really fun and busy weekend.  (This was also the same weekend that over 500 Lifetime employees beautified two parks and a cemetery in Utah.  So, our employees were really out-and-about helping in our community those two days.)  We were proud to be a part of the celebration and help welcome one of Lifetime’s retail accounts to Layton.

My favorite products from Lifetime- Our current family favorite is the Big Stuff Hard Roof Play set.  The boys and their cousins LOVE it!  Since our home has the tendency to become a gathering place, we get the most use out of our large array of Lifetime Folding Tables.  We have our eye on the Ace Flyer for Christmas.  I have grand plans for The 60” Lifetime Mammoth Basketball System, I just need to first do a little backyard excavation for the play area.

Ta-Da! Our Blog Makeover Reveal!
Notice anything different around here today? Yep, we gave ourselves a facelift! We've been working hard over the last few months to move this blog from a boxed program to our own admin site for a bunch of backend technical reasons that I won't bother to bore you with. More important to you is that, in the process, we also overhauled our look! It may not be with Botox or hair color, but even blogs need a makeover every now and then. We started by changing up our look to give it a lighter feel. We wanted to make it easier for you to read and quickly see teasers of several posts at once. Want to know who writes for our blog? With our new blogger profile section, it's easy for you to see who we each are and what we write about most of the time. We've also changed up the way we've categorized our blog posts so you can quickly fin...
Video Review of Lifetime Raised Garden Kit
A few months ago we told you about our newest lawn and garden product - the Lifetime Raised Garden Kits. We are thrilled to tell you they are quickly becoming a very popular product! These 4'x4' kits provide a full garden setup in less than one hour of easy do-it-yourself assembly with no tools required. But, a lot of you may still be wondering if they are really that easy to assemble and if they really work. Well, wonder no more! If you're a loyal reader of this blog, you may be familiar with our fellow Geekstyle blogger, Joe. It turns out that not only does Joe get geeky with techy things, but he also gets geeky about going green, too! A few weeks ago, we gave Joe a Lifetime Raised Garden Kit to review and use on his personal green/gardening website called PathToGreenerLiving.com. He created a detailed and in-...
