Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. [NASDAQ: BBBY] slipped around -0.67 points on Monday, while shares priced at $25.85 at the close of the session, down -2.53%. The company report on April 19, 2021 that Bed Bath & Beyond Invites People To “Escape The Noise™” With the Spa-Inspired Haven™ Owned Brand Line Of Modern Bath Essentials.
In a busy household, the bathroom is often the only room that can truly offer a private retreat, a place to escape the noise. In fact, a recent “Escape the Noise” survey, conducted by Bed Bath & Beyond (Nasdaq: BBBY), found that 40% of Americans linger in the bathroom longer than they need to just to get more alone time. The reality, however, is that many of us are settling for less-than-tranquil bathroom spaces. The survey went on to reveal that 68% of Americans believe having a space in their home dedicated to relaxation would be helpful in improving their self-care. It’s no surprise that “me-time” is essential in helping us find balance and be our best selves. In fact, Americans who do not have a space in their home where they can get quality “me-time”—that’s 37% of us—are far more likely than those who do to report having had high levels of stress over the past year. So how do we maximize our bathroom spaces to ensure they’re delivering that much-needed retreat?.
