LifestyleGarden® vow to support retailers during lockdown

LifestyleGarden®, the pioneer of the ground breaking DuraOcean® chair and stunning outdoor furniture ranges backed by an environmental and sustainable business agenda, has taken steps to ensure that extensive stock of its leading product portfolio is readily available to its customers including those set-up with transactional webstores, in a bid to meet consumer demand during the nationwide lockdown.


Since the Government ordered all non-essential retailers, including garden centres, to close their doors just weeks before the peak Easter sales period, LifestyleGarden® has vowed to support its retail customers as much as possible, and has worked tirelessly to ensure that all the containers entering the UK have been allocated or are safely warehoused ahead of the long-awaited post-Corona sales peak.


To support retailers at this difficult time, LifestyleGarden® is also driving consumers to its dedicated stockist page at so those isolating at home could safely obtain its products for home delivery during the Coronavirus crisis. The company will also be supporting its retailers with a wide-reaching consumer campaign to further engage and build awareness around its products; products that are ready and waiting to be sold once the doors open at garden centres post-lockdown.


“For much of the population the garden is their preferred retreat, as it provides a place to escape from the unprecedented restrictions that have been imposed on everyday life as the Government attempts to slow the spread of Covid-19,” said Paul Cohen, Sales Director at LifestyleGarden®.


Paul added: “Consumers are certainly looking for a pick-me-up at this time, and the garden is bearing witness to this. With a staycation likely to be the flavour of the month, it makes sense that the nation is looking to improve their garden spaces, with the furniture taking centre stage. What’s even better, with our DuraOcean® chairs playing its part in removing harmful plastic waste from the world’s oceans, purchasers can benefit from an extra dose of feel good endorphins.”


Paul concluded by offering a few words of reassurance. He said: “Press reports have suggested that sales of outdoor furniture and leisure products are going through the roof as the nation looks to improve their garden spaces, and our customers are echoing this. We’re hearing from many with online capabilities, that furniture is flying off the virtual shelves, and we’re only too happy to assist them – and all our retailers - in ensuring stock levels continue to meet this demand and will continue to do both now and long into the future. The team and I continue to be available to all our customers, so please reach out if there is anything we can assist with.”
