I think I now know how Santa must feel on Christmas morning.  Wow! It was such a great feeling when I shared the news yesterday with three lucky people that they were the random winners in our Lifetime Store gift certificate giveaway.  Being able to help make someone's holiday a little merrier is such a wonderful, heartwarming experience. Congratulations to our winners who will get to enjoy shopping in the Lifetime Store with their gift certificates: $400 - Kristi F. of Herriman, Utah $200 - Mary W. of DeLand, FL $100  - Michael T. of Ogden, Utah Thank you to everyone who entered our final monthly giveaway of 2011.  It was so interesting to see all of the variety of products you were planning to buy with your gift certificates.  Basketball hoops, sheds, swing sets, compos...

 This giveaway has ended. This week, we asked fans on our Facebook page what product they would like us to giveaway for our final monthly giveaway of 2011. It turns out, when you make so many great products, you get many great answers!  The majority of you wanted us to giveaway a shed.  But, picnic tables, swingsets, raised garden beds, and tables and chairs were also voted as favorites. Oh, decisions, decisions.  Sigh.  Know what?  Since it's the Christmas season and many of you have products from Lifetime on your list that you want to give (either to someone else or just yourself),  I think it would be much more fun to give away gift certificates to the Lifetime Store so YOU can pick whatever product (or maybe even more than one) you want! So, we'll be giving away not one, not two, but ... More

You've probably already gotten this question... but how was your Memorial Day weekend? Ours was great! As you probably read in our recent post, once again Lifetime partnered with the Utah Military Families Foundation (UMFF) to celebrate Memorial Day with our annual "Salute Our Troops" event. We put on a big sale at our Lifetime Store in Riverdale, complete with a free-throw contest, free ice cream, and kids activities-- with the goal to donate 5% of all proceeds to the UMFF. It was a blast! We're excited to announce that we even surpassed last year's donation for this great organization, and raised $1,712! We are proud to have been able to contribute to a cause that helps military families in our own community.  Thank you to all veterans past and present who serve our countr... More

At Lifetime, we  strongly believe that part of our corporate responsibility as a successful business is to support our local community.  So, I am excited to tell you that this Memorial Day we will, once again, be hosting our "Salute Our Troops" event! This event will be held only at our Lifetime Store location in Riverdale, Utah.  On Memorial Day, 5 percent of our proceeds will be donated to the Utah Military Families Foundation (UMFF), a privately-funded non-profit organization headquartered at Hill Air Force Base that supports over 80,000 military families throughout Utah. Lifetime Products is honored to be neighbors with Hill Air Force Base. So, this event is a way for Lifetime to thank our local military men and women - and their families - that sacrifice so much for our community and country.  And, ... More

Recently, Lifetime participated in a program with a Northern Utah paper, the Davis County Clipper. The Clipper told us about a special program where children create advertisments for local businesses in order to win a contest. Because children are a big part of our business, the Lifetime Store locations just had to get involved!  Ask any of our store associates about kids, and they can easily tell you all the kids they have met as their families shop for playgrounds, teeter-totters, basketball hoops, and more. Everyone knows that the best place to get a playground in Utah is the Lifetime Store.  I helped to gather the entries for this contest, it was so fun to see all the entries from kids in our own community. Congrats on all the entrants! They were all ... More

Things 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 in... More

As part of our regional advertising and public relations campaign in Utah, Lifetime has recently launched videos showcasing actual employees in different areas, talking about the products they make, and why they work hard to make them.  I talked about this campaign a few months ago in the blog post announcing the launch of this campaign, we are proud of our company, our people, our products, and our community. We are featuring the history of our greatest inventions and innovations. Who better to tell our story than the people who come to work here every day! Eleven out of our 1,200 people were selected to represent the company for this campaign.

Lifetime Garden Beds Are BPA Free
Some of you have asked if the plastic panels on the Lifetime Raised Garden Bed contain BPA (Bishphenol_A). Good question! BPA is a plasticizer that is used in the manufacturing of PVC (Polyvinyl chloride, recycling type 3 7) and other polycarbonate plastics to make them flexible. It is used mostly in flexible PVC piping, toys, plastic bottles, and the lining of some canned goods. In 2008, BPA became controversial as research indicated that it may be dangerous to our healthespecially to babies. The US Food and Drug Administration has now taken steps to reduce human exposure to BPA in our food supply and food containers. The good news is thatLifetime's plastic garden bed panels and the frost coverDO NOT contain BPA. They are a Green Product. We use high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE, recycling code type 2), and non toxic...
