Capitalizing on Bed Bath & Beyond Acquisition

Since the acquisition of the Bed Bath & Beyond brand on June 28, Overstock.Com, Inc. has been focused on capitalizing on this strategic move.

According to Jonathan Johnson, Chief Executive Officer, β€œWe are in the early stages of capitalizing on our recent acquisition. Since launching the new Bed Bath & Beyond in the U.S. on August 1, we have been successful in acquiring new customers and reactivating past customers. Total active customers grew sequentially after over two years.” The company has also seen positive year-over-year growth in orders for the first time in over two years.
