Bed Bath & Beyond wasn't a bad store. If you were looking for household stuff they had much more selection in those categories than the more generalized Target or similar would have. Quality ranged from cheap and terrible to quite decent. Also BB&B had a few niche things like a small amount of quite random "As Seen On TV" type of products, which while ridiculous make funny gifts. If you were looking for a set of bedsheets and wanted more choice than the one aisle at Target, and were also prone to impulse buy things like light-up glass dragonfly ornaments or a combination aquarium/lavalamp/landline phone, BB&B was a pretty good place.

Also those large clear plastic mugs with various logos on, that were some kind of rage a while back, BB&B had tens of thousands of those. A perfect I'm-required-to-get-you-something company Xmas gift.

eta: the other memorable thing about BB&B was the confusing floorplan. Not as maze-like as IKEA, but they attempted the same effect. You certainly seemed to turn far more corners than you'd expect in a rectangular store.
You added nothing to that conversation, Barbara.
