On the flip side, the chain of domestic merchandise retail stores “accelerated markdowns” were easing inventory overhang. Still, industry expert Jan Rogers Kniffen said in an interview with TD Ameritrade Network:

They haven’t had decent sales since 2016. They decided to revamp the business in 2019 and move into private label and be less dependent on branded goods. Now, we’re going back the other way. It’s a back to the future story and it’s not even a good future.

Competition from the likes of Amazon, Walmart, and Target remains a significant challenge as well, he added.

Wall Street sees downside in shares of Bed Bath & Beyond to $3.91 a share, which means the stock could tank another 35% from here.
