Bed Bath and Beyond Inc

Business Description

Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. operates specialty retail stores nationwide, including Bed Bath & Beyond stores (“BBB”), Harmon stores (“Harmon”) and Christmas Tree Shops stores (“CTS”). The Company believes it is the nation’s largest operator of stores selling predominantly better quality domestics merchandise and home furnishings.

BBB stores are almost exclusively of a “big box” format. BBB offers a wide assortment of merchandise at everyday low prices that are substantially below regular department store prices and generally comparable to or below department store sale prices. BBB’s domestics merchandise line includes items such as bed linens, bath accessories and kitchen textiles, and BBB’s home furnishings line includes items such as cookware, dinnerware, glassware and basic housewares.  BBB believes that it offers a breadth and depth of selection in most of its product categories that exceeds what is generally available in department stores or other specialty retail stores and that this enables it to offer customers the convenience of one-stop shopping for most household items.

BBB’s strategy for merchandising and marketing is to offer better quality merchandise at everyday low prices; to maintain a breadth and depth of selection in its product categories that exceeds what is generally available in department stores or other specialty retail stores; to present merchandise in a distinctive manner designed to maximize customer convenience and reinforce customer perception of wide selection; and to emphasize dedication to customer service and satisfaction.

BBB stores primarily offer domestics merchandise and home furnishings, which include:

Domestics Merchandise

• bed linens and related items: sheets, comforters, duvet covers, bedspreads, quilts, window treatments (such as curtains and valances), decorative pillows, blankets, dust ruffles, bed pillows and mattress pads.

• bath items: towels, shower curtains and liners, waste baskets, mirrors, hampers, robes, slippers, scales, bathroom rugs, wall hardware and other bath accessories.

• kitchen textiles: tablecloths, placemats, cloth napkins, dish towels and chair pads.

Home Furnishings

• kitchen and tabletop items: cookware, cutlery, kitchen gadgets, dinnerware, bakeware, flatware, drinkware, serveware, glassware, food storage containers, tea kettles, trash cans and cleaning supplies.

• fine tabletop and giftware: formal dinnerware china, fine crystal stemware and barware, crystal giftware, metal giftware, flatware, decanters and carafes, and decorative vases and bowls.

• basic housewares: storage items, closet-related items (such as hangers, organizers and shoe racks), general housewares (such as brooms, garbage pails and ironing boards), lifestyle accessories (such as lamps, chairs, ready to assemble furniture, furniture covers, accent rugs, and clocks) and small electric appliances (such as blenders, food processors, coffee makers, vacuums, irons, toaster ovens, hair dryers, heaters and humidifiers).

• general home furnishings: gift wrap, candles, personal care products (such as soaps, lotions and other health and beauty care items), picture frames, wall art, juvenile items (such as toys and children’s books), artificial plants and flowers and seasonal merchandise (such as summer and holiday-related items).

BBB, on an ongoing basis, tests new merchandise categories and adjusts the categories of merchandise carried in its stores and may add new departments or adjust the size of existing departments as required. BBB believes that the process of adding new departments and expanding or reducing the size of various departments in response to changing conditions is an important part of its merchandising strategy.


The market for domestics merchandise and home furnishings is fragmented and highly competitive. While the Company believes it is the preeminent marketer in its segment of the home goods industry, its BBB stores compete directly with a small number of store chains selling domestics merchandise and home furnishings. In addition, BBB stores compete with many different types of retail stores that sell many or most of the same products. Such competitors include: (I) better department stores, which often carry many of the same product lines as BBB stores but do not typically have the same depth or breadth of product selection, (II)  specialty stores (such as specialty linens or housewares retailers), which often have a depth of product selection but typically carry only a limited portion of the product lines carried by BBB stores, and (III) discount and mass merchandise stores. In addition, BBB stores compete, to a more limited extent, with factory outlet stores that typically offer limited quantities or limited lines of better quality merchandise at discount prices.
