Under the Covers at Bed, Bath and Beyond

Investors in Bed, Bath and Beyond have been tossing and turning in bed of late, as the retailer issued a number of less-than-stellar earnings statements.

More of the same is expected when BBBY reports second fiscal quarter earnings after the market closes later today.  Analysts forecast that revenue is flat, and that earnings declined.

We hate to see anyone lose sleep. So we took a look at Checkout Tracking data to see if we had anything positive to to say about the retailer. And we did, in fact, find a few bright spots when we compared BBBY to some of its competitors over the 12-month period ending in August.

  • People who buy from Bed, Bath and Beyond make 2.84 buying visits per year to the company’s stores. That’s a higher frequency than Pier 1, The Container Store or Williams-Sonoma.
  • And those BBBY buyers spend a total of $120.10 at those stores each year. That’s a higher annual spend than at those same three rivals.

For more detail, take a look at the chart below.

Bed Bath & Beyond $120.10
