At Northeast Factory Direct, patio season has officially begun…again.

Marc Linden, store manager for NEFD’s Cleveland location, says that early spring and late summer are typically the busiest times of the year for outdoor furniture sales.

“We get a lot of people who want to take advantage of the fresh inventory and buy in early spring. Then we have people who wait until late in the season, hoping to score a terrific bargain,” Marc says. “We not only have outstanding deals on outdoor furniture, we also have a spectacular selection—and all of it is ready to go. Either take it with you or we’ll deliver immediately so you can still get months of use out of it this year.”

Unlike other furniture retailers impacted by the pandemic, NEFD experienced only minor supply chain issues. “We bought big into patio furniture way early, so when springtime came we were fully stocked while other stores had nothing,” Marc says. “People flocked here because we actually had inventory, and everything pretty much sold out immediately.”

To assuage continuing demand, Marc and his team put in another huge outdoor furniture order, and what’s in stock right now is going to blow you away.

“We have an outstanding selection,” he promises. “Our signature outdoor line is by Ashley, and we have sets and pieces in cast aluminum, resin, wicker resin and solid wood. And all cushions are covered in Nuvella fabric, which is water resistant and easy to clean.”

At NEFD, Ashley furniture is the outdoor brand of choice. Selections come in cast aluminum, wicker resin, solid wood and resin. Not ready to shop in person? Everything is just a click away at

In stock right now at all NEFD locations are outdoor sectionals, sofas, loveseats, chairs, small dinette sets, accent tables and firepits. In fact, NEFD sells so many firepits they’re expecting more to arrive in the very near future. “We can hardly keep them in stock, but we do have a few right now ready to go,” Marc assures.

Marc says that in addition to the spectacular savings offered at NEFD, people love to buy patio furniture right now for a number of different reasons.

“People want to create a beautiful outdoor space before Labor Day, and with the selection we currently have in stock they can definitely do that. Whether you’re looking to design a cozy outdoor space that feels really intimate for lounging or relaxing, or you’re focused on a welcoming space that’s perfect for parties and large gatherings, we’ve got the styles and selection right here,” Marc says. “Then there’s the people who want to get ready for next spring, so by buying now, they can have their outdoor furniture purchased early so they’re ready to enjoy the outdoors the minute the weather starts to turn. They can actually avoid the seasonal rush and just kick back and enjoy. And, finally, there is no indication that the supply chain issue every retailer is experiencing is going to correct itself anytime soon. We have a generous amount of outdoor furniture in our inventory. I’m not sure how many stores can say that or will be able to say that come spring. Buying now is a smart decision.”

And with the ample selection and variety offered at NEFD, Marc says shoppers also enjoy the opportunity to customize.

“So many places make you buy entire groupings in order to get the pieces you want. Not here,” he says. “If you just need an outdoor couch and two chairs, you can get that. If you’re trying to complete a set you bought last year, you can grab those extra pieces. The opportunity to customize abounds.”

Marc acknowledges that not everyone feels comfortable venturing out to stores right now, and that’s perfectly okay. Everything NEFD has in stock when it comes to outdoor furnishings can be found on the company website.

“We can deliver to you so that you don’t have to come in contact with a person, or we’ll deliver it and assemble it for you,” Marc suggests. “Our goal is to eliminate the trepidation some people might feel about visiting one of our locations, and the frustration of not finding what you want available.”

“We have a ton of fabulous outdoor furniture inventory, a generous selection of pieces and styles, and the signature no-pressure sales assistance people have come to appreciate when they shop here,” Marc says. “Pay a visit to any of our locations to complete your ultimate outdoor space so you can enjoy the remaining warm-weather months while getting a jump on squeezing all the enjoyment you can out of next spring.”
