Two Best Buy concepts, one focused on outdoor furnishings and the other on bargain electronics and appliances, are set to expand in Houston.
Yardbird, an online retailer of eco-friendly outdoor furniture acquired by Best Buy in November, will open its first Texas location in Rice Village in June. The 4,350-square-foot store at 2433 University Blvd. will be the 11th showroom for the direct to consumer brand, which sells patio sets, chairs and couches with Sunbrella fabric cushions. Some of its most popular pieces utilize resin wicker made with recycled plastic waste recovered from beaches that is woven onto aluminum frames.
