2024 ICFA Apollo Award Nomination

American Casual Living Recognized as one of America’s Best Outdoor Living Retailers

The prestigious Apollo Award recognizes premier casual furnishing retailers from across the country, and honors are bestowed upon finalists who demonstrate outstanding accomplishments, a commitment to customer service and a dedication to professional staff development.

American Casual Living is proud to have won the award in 2022 in the Single-Store Category and we’re honored to be nominated again for this year’s award.

“The Apollo Award represents the pinnacle of our business—a recognition of our innovative approach to retail sales and marketing and our unwavering dedication to our customers and employees,” says Lee Recchia, Owner of American Casual Living. “We’re a family-owned business with a passion for this industry, and that makes this kind of recognition even more meaningful.”

Conveniently located across from the Mall of Georgia, American Casual Living delivers the best selection of outdoor and casual furniture in its 25,000-square- foot showroom. With more than 150 years of collective experience, customers won’t find a more experienced staff to help guide them in their purchases—from ready-to-go outdoor lounge sets to custom outdoor cushion design.

The winners will be announced on July 16.

Store is Full of Ideas!

I am really going to miss coming to the store! You guys make it so much fun and the store is so full of ideas! This whole journey of decorating the Mineral Bluff project has been far more enjoyable than I thought possible. I have to compliment American Casual Living on the atmosphere that numerous members of the sales team would work together on my project with ideas and suggestions and no jealousy between staff. So much fun and creativity for the customer! Thanks to you and your staff for such an enjoyable and fulfilling experience!

Customer Satisfaction

Just wanted to send you a note to express how much I enjoyed doing business with you. The patio furniture is great, but I was more impressed with your attitude toward customer satisfaction. I appreciate you replacing the base of the patio table that was somewhat unstable without question or delay. Even more impressive was your willingness to replace the base for the chair when I was responsible for the damage. I worked as COO of a company and was responsible for customer satisfaction. I know we did it right, but saw that the majority of businesses were only interested in “today’s” dollar. It is refreshing to see that you do it right also. Thanks for the help and your attitude.
