Popular demand brings back Christy Sports’ early season patio furniture event.
Christy Sports, a local specialty outdoor furniture retailer, today announced plans for its second annual patio furniture event in April.
The event will be held at the same location as last year; 9555 East County Line Rd, next to IKEA in the Centennial Promenade. It opens on Friday, April 12 and runs through Monday, April 22 from 10AM to 7PM every day. They will showcase an extensive selection of high quality patio furniture and accessories for 20 to 50 percent off as well as 20 percent off of special orders. The showroom offers 17,000 square feet of retail space, making it the single largest patio furniture sale location in Colorado, featuring over 50 different furniture collections from more than 20 vendors.
Standard business practices embrace high costs at the beginning of the season and a close out sale at the end, in an attempt to minimize inventory storage. While this is traditionally an effective business tactic, if the consumer wants to take advantage of sale pricing it leaves little time to enjoy their new products before the seasons change. “Last year, we wanted to approach the retail patio furniture industry differently, so we modeled our patio furniture event after our pre ski-season Powder Daze event. We were able to effectively manage our inventory from the beginning of the season, and our customers gained the immediate benefit of using their new patio furniture all summer long instead of storing it away for the winter,” remarked Dan Fox, Director of Front Range Operations for Christy Sports. Additionally, customers take advantage of a full selection of new inventory rather than the leftover product at the end of the summer season.
The inventory liquidation last April garnered so much public attention because no other outdoor furniture retailer had done an early season event at such a large scale. “The response to our approach was resoundingly positive,” said Mr. Fox. “Not only did people come in from all over the Front Range and mountains, but we had customers drive from as far away as Nebraska and Wyoming. After such widespread public interest, we decided we had to bring back the patio furniture event this year.” With professional design advice and a special order consultation area, Christy Sports continues to improve upon its innovative outdoor furniture event.
