Lynn's Patio Shop and Casual Furnishings was established in 1978 by Lynn Franklin. She knew that she could sell upscale leisure furniture at competetive prices and then service those products years after the sale.
Starting small and growing steadily, Lynn went from renting retail space to buying land and building the present location in 1983. Within 3 years another much larger warehouse was needed and built (off location). This second warehouse was soon doubled in size as the business continued to grow.
Lynn's Patio Shop started out a family business and is to this day. In 1978 Lynn started out as the only sales person. All deliveries were made by her husband Jack after work, and their son Doug each day after school. The very first delivery truck was a 1963 Ford step side pick up truck. Deliveries were made in that open truck rain or shine regardless of temperature or how late it took to finish.
Flash forward to today. Lynn's Patio Shop has grown to an over 11,000 square foot furniture display. They maintain an enormous on hand inventory in the warehouse for immediate delivery. Because casual furniture is what they specialize in, it is an ongoing not seasonal business. The showroom is never converted to another seasonal product like Christmas trees and decorations or hot tubs and fire place logs or pool tables. It is a patio and casual furniture store everyday, where you will always find a tremendous selection of the finest manufacturers and styles.
Today Lynn's Patio Shop is still owned operated by Lynn and son Doug . They are always present. It is still very much a hands operation. Neither one of them could imagine not being involved in every aspect of the business each and everyday. It has been a labor of love and they still enjoy what they do. It is both their passion and a reflection of their personalities that this business has succeeded and flourished. It is no surprise that Lynn Franklin has never missed a single day of work in the last nearly 40 years.
Lynn and Doug both feel it has been an honor and a privilege to serve their customers and friends in Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky. Lynn's Patio Shop still strives to earn new and repeat customer's respect and business.
At Lynn's Patio Shop customer's can expect reliable, caring, and knowledgeable service both before and after the sale.
