They should add a new section, Bondage. I can see it now Bed, Bath, Bondage, & Beyond.

In case anyone's missed the "Beyond" section.

Always enjoy browsing their kitchenware section. Of course I always go buy at amazon for 30% less, so maybe that's the problem

Yeah, I went to go buy some pots and pans at BB+B, saw that their stuff was CRAZY overpriced, then went to Ikea and got everything I needed for the cost of one pot at BB+B....

/don't sleep on Ikea's kitchenware, they have stainless steel pots and pans that work on induction stovetops at great prices...

With the DOMA ruling, best to go long on this one.

The fact that BB&B only sells crappy celebrity endorsed cookware and drastically understaff their stores, I'm not surprised.

///Celebrity-endorsed cookware is Farberware with a pretty enamel coating

"I don't like Bed Bath & Beyond.  I don't like what goes on at Bed Bath & Beyond.  So you know what I do about it?  That's right - I DON'T GO THERE!  You know what I don't do about it, I don't picket Bed Bath & Beyond.  I don't put Bed Bath & Beyond in an 'Axis Of Evil' with Kitchen Caboodle and the Baby Gap.  I don't think Bed Bath & Beyond should have to be 500 yards from the elementary school - I just don't go to Bed Bath & Beyond!"

I don't really see how they have any kind of longterm growth potential.

Putting aside the fact that this whole industry is moving online, increasingly retailers like Home Depot are encroaching on BB&B's territory, stocking small kitchen appliances (e.g blenders, coffee makers, bread makers, etc).

Stay tuned for the sequel, Double Click.

They would then be chased with torches and pitchforks to the outskirts of town by the local fundie contingent, setting up shop in the same complex as Adult World. Either way, I'd still start shopping there if this were made a reality...

The one thing that was really implausible in that movie was the fact that Adam Sandler was married to Kate Beckinsale.  Ok 2 things - he fast forwarded the sexy time with her.

I always rather liked BB&B, mostly because my wife got me a VuPoint Magic Wand scanner there for
Christmas a couple of years back.

Ikea's metal stuff is great. Have some nice shelves in my kitchen from them.

They are branching out into other divisions...which usually doesn't work out too well either when companies do this (eg. the late 80's-early 90's Kmart)

-BB&B also operates Buy Buy Baby
-Cost Plus (West Coast)
-Harmon Health & Beauty stores (local BB&B has a section inside the store, but they recently opened a standalone store in a former Rite Aid near me)

I go in once in a while, and I can't believe I see people actually buy stuff without a 20% off coupon.
 
2013-06-27 11:51:35 AM
probably the cost of postage for mailing all those coupons in the mail.

Meanwhile, the Things section of Linens and Things is up 14%.

Don't forget the spin-off, Right Click: More Options.

You do realize that BB&B gives out 20% off coupons like candy, right? There's absolutely no reason to set foot in their stores unless you're holding one.

FYI, I believe they'll give you a 20% off coupon for signing up for their email list. I've used that a couple times.

I can't stand the smell inside those stores. I'm not sure what they use to make it smell like potpourri but I always start sneezing after I walk inside.

You get 20% off coupons in the mail for living within x miles of a BB&B
