  BBBY Slows Expansion in 2010 Despite Recovery

In FY 2009, Bed Bath & Beyond opened 67 new stores. They had planned to open 60 stores in FY 2010. However, even as the economy strengthens and the store's sales increase, the company hasn't been able to keep up with its desired expansion. Trough the first three quarters of 2010, BBBY has only managed to open 23 stores. Slower expansion means slower growth, which could affect BBBY's stock price.

  Economic downturn has largely reduced customer demand for home furnishing products

The current recession has reduced consumers' demand for home furnishing products. In fact, sales figures from the home furnishing industry fell 13.5% in October 2008, and sales are expected to fall even through the 2008-2009 Christmas season. BBBY is expected to post negative comparable store growth in Q3 and Q4 2008, and the home furnishing retail sector is not expected to reverse this loss during this time of economic hardship.
