Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. is a chain of domestic merchandise retail stores in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada[3] and Mexico.[4] Formed in 1971, the stores sell goods primarily for the bedroom and bathroom, as well as kitchen and dining room. 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 500 and the Forbes Global 2000 as well.

Since the liquidation of Linens 'n Things, Bed Bath & Beyond has few major retail competitors except Walmart, Target, J. C. Penney, and some mid-sized players like Pier 1 Imports. Companies such as Crate & Barrel, IKEA and the numerous Williams-Sonoma companies (e.g. Pottery Barn and West Elm) are also competitors.
