Founded in 1979 in Schertz, Texas, the original name of the company was Garden Ridge Pottery. This was later changed to Garden Ridge. The company operates a chain of big box type furniture and home decor stores which offer rugs, lamps, chairs, patio furniture, housewares, textiles, wall art, and holiday decor.
After filing for bankruptcy in 2014, the company was acquired by AEA Investors in 2011.
In 2014, the company decided on a major overhaul and changed not only the orange color theme of Garden Ridge to grey but renamed all locations to At Home. There are currently 150 locations in 34 states, as well as a large eCommerce site, as of September 2018.
The company has made a substantial investment in inventory that appears to be paying off, with profits soaring into the double-digit range in 2018.
At Home appears to have big plans for California, opening their 200th store in San Diego, California, in July 2019, with plans to open 600 more across the nation in the next two years, with at least 80 more locations scheduled for California alone.
At Home went public on the NASDAQ in early 2016 under the ticker symbol: HOME.
Headquarters for the company remain in Plano, Texas.
