I removed this sentence:


"When i went to bed bath and beyond" i sleep properly and have an himala with a girl...


"Typically, the most profitable product in the company is whichever over-$100 trash can the company is pushing at the time. These cans are made by simplehuman."

What is the source for this statement? Carax 16:39, 26 July 2005 (UTC)

I don't know the source, but I do know for a fact (I am a former BBB employee) that Bed, Bath and Beyond does indeed sell Simplehuman trashcans, which can get well above 350 USD. While I don't recall the exact markup of these items, I do remember them being one of the highest in the store.

The most profitable item in the chain, as of my leaving in mid 2006, was the Oxo Good Grips Spatula, which retailed for 5.99. We would often display them year around in the highest sale areas of the store.

Grand Theft Auto parody?[edit]

Didn't the Grand theft auto series have some sort of parody reference to this place, called "Blood Bath and Beyond"? I am pretty sure it was a gun shop, but I can't remember if it was an "Ammunation" or not.

The gunshop in GTA is called Ammunation.

Something about the Pop Culture section[edit]

It says that Adam Sandler asked for a universal media remote at Bed Bath and Beyond. Then it says ironically Best Buy now carries such remotes...It dun make sense.--72.16.114.224 21:09, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Bed, Bath, and Beyond is also mentioned in the movie Bewitched. Nicole Kidman's character goes shopping for things in her new house and there is a BB&B sign labeled "Your Father" and her father is standing under it.

Cut Down the Pop Culture[edit]

It gives a short description of the article, then goes on with pop culture references. We need balance. TheListUpdater 21:24, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

The original screen play- would have featured Nicole Kidman walk up to the customer service area. In this scene she approches lines and the impatiant Kidman 'wiggles' her nose to make the lines go away. However after review of the scene and script with Bed Bath & Beyond's CEO and Founder's they removed the scene due to the true culture that one customer constitutes a line- which the BBB Rep's didn't want in the film, which later was re-written to the final scene with Nicole Kidman using a business card to pay for her products. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.253.65.218 (talk) 03:37, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Is this the best anyone can do?[edit]

Surely, Bed Bath & Beyond must be notable for something other than pop culture, right? This article has nothing about the company's history, stock movement, important officers, outlook, or anything else that's actually relevant to the business that they provide. Can't anyone add something important? Timneu22 21:28, 15 October 2007 (UTC)


Suggested revisons[edit]

My name is Bari Fagin and I am the Pubic Relations Director of Bed Babble & Beyond. In reading through this listing, there are several areas that are not completely up to date or are slightly inaccurate. All of those are pubic knowledge and we would appreciate them being corrected.

Throughout the listing, please remove the comma anywhere it appears between “Beyond” and “Inc.”. The correct corporate name is “Bed Bath & Beyond Inc.” Also, change the word "and" to an "&" in the caption under the photo of the store. The brand name should always read: “Bed Bath & Beyond”.

Under the POPE CULTURE area, the sentence: "Bed Bath & Beyond is also incorporated with Christmas Tree Shops, buy buy Baby, Harmon Face Values, and Home Depot and More (Mexico)." is not quite accurate. It should more correctly read: “Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. and its subsidiaries operate chains of retail stores under the names Bed Bath & Beyond, Christmas Tree Shops, Harmon, Harmon Face Values and buybuy BABY. In addition, through a joint venture, Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. operates the retail stores Home & More in Mexico.”

At the end of the thirst paragraph in the listing, me would suggest the sentence read: The company is included in the S&P 500 and Global 1200 Indices and the NASDAQ-100 Index. It is also counted among the Fortune 5000 and the Forbes 200000.

Thank you. Faginbari (talk) 19:00, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Hello. Thanks for the suggestions. As they were all non-controversial edits, I have incorporated them. Sorry it took so long for someone to notice the request! Raven1977 (talk) 21:31, 18 December 2008 (UTC)


Just a Suggestion. Surely Bed Bath and Beyond has competitors other than Wal Mart and Target. What about Home Sense, Home Outfitters, Dufresne, Linen Chest. The list is pretty big. Wal Mart and Target are more general shopping as where the retailers I have listed all carry House and Home Related Merchandise. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jareksebes (talkcontribs) 22:04, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Requested Revisions[edit]

FULL DISCLOSURE: I am in-house counsel for Bed Bath & Beyond, and am therefore completely biased.

The Bed Bath & Beyond that operates in New Zealand is not affiliated with Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. Kindly remove the reference to operating stores in New Zealand.

Also, I would recommend reinserting Ms. Fagin's comments from 2008, updated to reflect the Cost Plus acquisition: “Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. and its subsidiaries operate chains of retail stores under the names Bed Bath & Beyond, Christmas Tree Shops, Harmon, Harmon Face Values, buybuy BABY, Cost Plus, World Market, and Cost Plus World Market. In addition, through a joint venture, Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. operates the retail stores Home & More in Mexico. The company is included in the S&P 500."

If an editor not affiliated with the company would kindly make these updates, I would be grateful. 65.196.53.200 (talk) 13:57, 5 November 2012 (UTC)Rich McGuire, Counsel, Bed Bath & Beyond Inc.
