Patio Plus Furniture has moved to a new
location at 136 South Broadway, Saratoga
Springs in June.
Bob Scott founded Patio Plus Furniture in
1987. Both his father and grandfather were
involved in furniture sales. He decided to
continue the family tradition and opened
Patio Plus in Granville.
After almost 30 years of business, Scott
decided to move operations to Saratoga
“A vast amount of my business has been
from Saratoga” said Scott.
Scott has roots in Saratoga. Before entering
the furniture business, he worked as the
director of Parks and Recreation, and worked
for the Wesley Community. He is also an avid
horse racing fan and has been involved in
horse racing partnerships since he was old
enough to place a bet.
According to Scott, Patio Plus Furniture
is the largest retailer of casual and outdoor
furniture in the United States. The company
carries all types of outdoor furniture–from
tables and chairs, to storage equipment, to
cooking furniture, to hammocks and more.
“We carry anything for the outdoors” said
Scott. “It’s one-stop shopping. You don’t
need to go to 10 different places to get what
Patio Plus Furniture carries a variety of
manufacturers. Tommy Bahama is an upscale,
high-quality label, Scott also carries
modestly priced wicker furniture, a classic
outdoor material. Some of the other lines
carried include Tropitone, Gloster, Alfresco
Home, and Seaside Casual.
“We have a much broader scope that we
can provide to customers” said Scott.
Besides providing great outdoor furniture
to residences, Patio Plus also has a large
commercial clientele. Several companies in
Saratoga Springs have been outfitted with
Patio Plus furniture, including the Hampton
Inn, the Hilton Hotel, and Park Place
“My philosophy is two-fold. First, I want to
do one thing and do it well, and that is sell
furniture. Second, I believe there’s enough
to go around for everybody. I don’t pay attention
to the other furniture stores, I just pay
attention to my own customers and how I’m
treating them,” said Scott.
The furniture store has several things
planned in the future now that it has moved
to Saratoga Springs, including being involved
with the upcoming expansion of Concord
Pools and Spas.
