The At Home Group, formerly known as Garden Ridge, utilizes the self-service model and encourages customers to visit a local At Home store to purchase home decor items. As of 2015, the company does not offer an online catalog. To locate an At Home store, customers may visit AtHome.com.
The At Home Group offers a variety of decor items, including indoor furniture, patio and outdoor furniture, art and throw pillows, rugs and curtains, housewares, and seasonal items. The average At Home store is about 120,000 square feet and stocks more than 50,000 products, giving customers a wealth of home decor items from which to choose.
Customers may browse At Home's blog, also located at AtHome.com, to view the latest decorating trends and available items. The blog provides storage solutions, ideas for decorating with pets, creative holiday solutions and gift ideas, among other features. The company encourages customers to view the blog frequently to take advantage of promotions, contests and seasonal color ideas.
Founder Eric White established the first Garden Ridge store, Garden Ridge Pottery, in Schertz, Texas. In 2014, the company embraced the At Home retail concept and changed the store's orange color scheme to gray, white and blue. The franchise also changed some of the store's pricing and item availability, giving customers more variety at more affordable prices.
