Bed Bath & Beyond is trying to focus on their main business, so they’ve decided to sell off one of their other retail chains — Cost Plus World Market.

This comes after Bed Bath & Beyond announced some store closures after facing financial difficulties due to COVID-19.

Apparently the sale of World Market is going to be finalized in February 2021. And between now and then, you’ll want to make some moves.
