our principles


customer inspired


performance- driven

We strive to create an equitable, inclusive, work environment where all Associates feel at home and can thrive through targeted actions to support diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) while providing industry-leading total rewards, learning and development, and upskilling opportunities.
At the heart of every action there is always a customers’ needs in mind.  The connection with our customers allows us to drive innovation, forward thinking, and the ability to adapt and evolve. We lead with a customer- facing lens that creates a seamless shopping experience—no matter when or where you want to shop.
We are committed to building an experience for our customers that is easy and convenient, when and where they want to shop – in our stores or online, from the comfort of their homes. 
Keeping our focus on personal development and driving results toward aligned goals produces an achievement mindset. We encourage our Associates to take initiative, be curious and bold to lead change and drive performance to achieve our aligned outcomes.

our practices

our story

The first Bed n Bath stores opened over 50 years ago in 1971 in Short Hills, NJ, and Plainview, NY selling mostly bed linens and bath accessories. In 1985, Bed n Bath had expanded into Connecticut and California and introduced its superstore format, which carried a full line of domestic merchandise and home furnishings. Our product offerings continued to expand to meet the needs of our customers. In 1987, we updated our name to Bed Bath & Beyond to better reflect the breadth of the products in our 600+ stores in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Mexico. Over 20,000 associates support our retail locations, B2B operations, and online destinations for products, solutions, and services. 

Back in 1996, buybuy BABY was founded by Richard and Jeffrey Feinstein, the sons of Bed Bath & Beyond co-founder Leonard, to sell high-quality infant and toddler merchandise. Bed Bath & Beyond welcomed buybuy BABY’s brood of eight stores in 2007 and has since grown to 100 locations across the U.S. carrying a premier assortment of furniture, car seats, strollers, feeding, bedding, health and baby care, bath, safety, toys, learning and development products, clothing, as well as a seasonal and holiday products.

Today, we are driven to make it easy for our customers and associates to feel at home under the banners of Bed Bath & Beyond and buybuy BABY. Our recently launched services like BOPIS (Buy Online, Pickup In-Store), contactless curbside pickup, and same-day delivery, as well as our Own Brands—exclusively available from Bed Bath & Beyond—are rooted in a customer-inspired approach.

voice of the associate 
Associates are at the heart of our business, and together we create positive change within the organization. We rely on a continuous listening strategy which includes the voice of the associate surveys, sharing platforms, and focus groups—allowing associates to provide feedback on the associate experience, our performance, strengths, and areas to improve. More importantly, we take action on the results and work together to shape the future culture of our organization.
