What Is Garden Ridge?

Garden Ridge is the former name of the At Home chain of home decor superstores. At Home bases itself in Plano, Texas, and operates several branches in the United States, and also has an online catalog. The company started in 1979, and the name change occurred in 2014.

At Home's departments include home decor, furniture, kitchen and dining, bed and bath, and patio and garden. Home decor features rugs, lamps, pillows, mirrors and clocks, while the company's furniture supply includes console tables and office desks. Food storage and kitchen organizational tools are among the highlights of the kitchen category, while bed and bath has linens, bedding, bathroom storage items and bathroom accessories. The patio and garden category features several kinds of wicker patio furniture.

A special feature of At Home is its Holiday Headquarters that sells Christmas, Thanksgiving and Halloween decorations, gifts and party supplies. Certain styles are also prevalent among the company's products, including Modern Metro, Urban Living, Boho Chic, Tribal Cadence and Luxury Luxe.

Individual At Home stores often compare in size to a Walmart or Target, with 120,000 square feet being the average store size. The company's website has a store locator feature where website visitors can find the store closest to them.
