Home Outfitters (known as Déco Découverte in Quebec) is a Canadian retail home decor chain selling bedding, towels, housewares, and other home accessories. Home Outfitters is owned by Hudson's Bay Company.[1] Home Outfitters originally launched in 1998 as Bed, Bath & More in 1998, before being revamped and relaunched under the new name in 1999.[2] The chain peaked at 69 locations in October 2014.[3] It operates 44 stores as of November 2017.[4]

In July 2014, HBC announced that it would begin integrating Home Outfitters into its Hudson's Bay retail division (including increased availability of its product line through Hudson's Bay locations and its website), along with the closure of 2 stores.[5] In 2016, HBC rebranded three Home Outfitters locations in Winnipeg under the banner Hudson's Bay Home as a pilot .[6]

In February 2019, HBC announced the closing of all 37 locations of Home Outfitters.[7]
