When husband and wife Norman and Vie Labadie started Labadie’s Summer Place Casuals on US 31 east of Honor in the spring of 2000, they didn’t start small. They started with a huge inventory of quality patio furniture, 1,000 sets to be exact. Today, they have 33,000 square feet of indoor showroom space and another 18,000 square feet outside. In addition, they also carry brand name outdoor living accessories that include sculptures, umbrellas, fountains, and all the accessories that go along with outdoor furniture.
Even with their enormous inventory of patio furniture, the Labadies only display about 200 sets in their showroom at a time. However, they are quick to share their motto with customers: “If you don’t see what you want, ask.” Chances are they will have what you want in the back storeroom or will do their best to help you track it down. The couple carries the largest selection of patio furniture in the state. The Labadies are committed to carrying the best quality but selling it at discounted prices. Brands include Beachfront, Classic Rattan, Chicago Wicker, Seaside, Meadowcraft and many more, including a large selection of grills.
