TreeHouse Opens in South Austin
published on November 7, 2011
“We don’t just help build smarter homes. We help build smarter homeowners.” TreeHouse, a new retail store in south Austin, is certainly doing its part to make a mark on the increasingly conscientious retail trade in Austin. It joins other new, innovative stores like in.gredients by offering consumers a way to shop that is both socially and environmentally responsible, while also friendly to pocketbooks. The Westgate shopping center is the perfect place for this new venture, as it is already full of stores like Central Market, Yoga Yoga, and Whole Earth Provision Co that make life a little less focused on keeping up with the Joneses, and a little more focused on keeping everyone in harmony with themselves, others, and nature. The center is particularly convenient for home owners in the Travis Country subdivision, a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
The store provides everything consumers hope for in terms of sustainable home products, including tools, cleaning supplies, solar kits, electric, lighting, and more; they even have a smart home technology section. There are also education stations, idea centers, and expert staff throughout the store to help customers get the most out of the products they are buying.
The driving philosophy of the store is that there are five things that matter most in conducting their business: people, communities, nature, excellence, and dreams. They use these motivators not only as a belief system, but a set of standards to which they hold themselves and their products. One such illustration of these principles in action is their unique product filter system that scores each product based on four factors: health, sustainability, performance, and corporate responsibility. If a product doesn’t meet their standards, it never meets their shelves. They also hope to help customers with their bottom lines and health, as their environmentally friendly products help save money and keep harmful products out of the home.
Of course, one doesn’t have to be a home owner to shop at TreeHouse, but to really get the most out of their products and services, owning your own home is definitely helpful. If you are looking at Austin homes for sale, REALTOR® Brian Talley can certainly help you find the perfect place to integrate your new eco-friendly goodies.
