Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) is grappling with weak comps, which are weighing on the top line. Nevertheless, the company is on track with the transformation plan and store rationalization efforts.
(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Bed Bath & Beyond Inc.’s sales have withered in recent years for a variety of internal reasons, but it has also suffered because of punishing competition from Target Corp. Now the beleaguered home-goods chain will try to get some of that Target magic for itself.Bed Bath & Beyond announced its new CEO Wednesday evening: Mark Tritton, chief merchandising officer at Target since 2016. Target’s recent turnaround is partly based on better merchandising in its home-goods department.This is an impressive poaching effort and a promising development for a chain that badly needed new leadership after longtime CEO Steven Temares — who finally departed earlier this year after a bruising activist investor fight — drove the company into a rut, with outdated stores and a sluggish move toward e-commerce.Tritton is a good fit for the role, given Bed Bath & Beyond’s needs. As Target’s chief merchant, he oversaw the rapid-fire development and rollout of more than 30 private-label brands, many of them in the home-goods category. Before Target, he was a senior executive at Nordstrom Inc., where he supervised the design and manufacturing of a stable of private brands.A stronger selection of private brands is essential to a Bed Bath & Beyond turnaround. These products could differentiate the chain from its competitors and, crucially, tend to be more profitable. That would be an enormous help for a chain that has decimated its gross margins in recent years.Bed Bath & Beyond has recently awakened to the role a stronger private-label offering could play for its business, with a pledge to debut six new such brands by 2020. So far, however, they’re unimpressive: One of its first launches, a line called Bee & Willow, lacked the charm and aspirational presentation that Target typically nails.Tritton also was in the C-suite at Target when it was working its way out of a rough patch in its pricing strategy for everyday essentials. The retailer recovered by tamping down on excessive promotional blitzes and focusing on lower everyday prices. Bed Bath & Beyond, with its tired buffet of 20% off coupons, could use a similar reassessment.Lastly, Tritton led merchandising at Target during a time of significant changes to in-store presentation. Sight lines have been lowered, produce is displayed in sleek wooden bins, and the beauty department now has a Sephora-like sleekness. Bed Bath & Beyond stores are cluttered mazes that could greatly benefit from an overhaul, which Tritton could oversee.Of course, merchandising is just one aspect of a potential Bed Bath & Beyond turnaround. Tritton’s resume is less reassuring about other key parts of the job. For example, the company has rightly been exploring strategic alternatives for its smaller chains, such as Cost Plus World Market and Christmas Tree Shops. It’s unclear how deft he’ll be at handling those potential divestitures.Tritton will face other challenges, too — especially at a company that is already cutting jobs and closing stores, which are not exactly morale boosters for employees.Overall, though, investors should be optimistic about Tritton’s arrival. Bed Bath & Beyond is in bad shape, but it is not beyond repair. He could be the one to pull off this home makeover.To contact the author of this story: Sarah Halzack at email@example.comTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Michael Newman at firstname.lastname@example.orgThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Sarah Halzack is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering the consumer and retail industries.

Investing.com - Retailer Bed Bath&Beyond; (NASDAQ:BBBY) rallied sharply in after-hours trading as the company named the former chief marketing officer of Target (NYSE:TGT) as its new chief executive.
(Bloomberg Opinion) -- It’s early October, which can mean only one thing for U.S. retailers (if not shoppers): Time to shift the focus to the holidays.This year brings a confusing mix of signals about how the industry will fare during the annual seasonal shopping blitz. The unemployment rate is at its lowest level in 50 years, which suggests an upbeat consumer environment that should have many shoppers opening their wallets. But newly implemented tariffs — and the feeling that President Donald Trump could change course on those policies at any moment — loom as a giant question mark.Despite this uncertainty, one prediction seems perfectly safe: No matter what, the holiday season is going to be to a merry one for Walmart Inc. and Target Corp. Both chains are in their best shape in years, and even if the consumer picture darkens, it doesn’t much threaten them.The two giants of big-box retail have been on impressively long streaks of comparable sales growth. They are outliers in a sector littered with companies that are either withering (Forever 21, Bed Bath & Beyond Inc.) or struggling (Macy’s Inc., Kohl’s Corp.).There’s no reason to think Target and Walmart won’t be able to keep up their steady performance in the fourth quarter. Both were successful last holiday season in capturing some of the toy sales that were up for grabs after Toys “R” Us had liquidated. Both have made investments this year to help them beat back competition in the seasonal showdown: Target is remodeling about 300 stores this year, making its aisles easier to navigate and freshening its look. Walmart has added one-day shipping on hundreds of thousands of items, answering Amazon.com Inc.’s promises of ultra-speedy shipping.Speaking of e-commerce, both Walmart and Target stand to benefit from their relatively mature click-and-collect models. This service is helpful year-round, both because consumers like it and because it is often more profitable for the retailer to have customers pick up a product than to ship it to their homes. But they have a particular advantage during the holiday season. In the final days before Christmas, when many people would otherwise stop shopping online for fear their orders won’t arrive at their doorsteps on time, this format allows retailers to keep wringing more sales out of online shoppers.Walmart and Target also stand out because, if the worst-case scenarios for retailers do come to pass this holiday season, they are especially well-equipped to withstand them. The biggest danger for the industry this season is unpredictable fallout from the trade war with China. If consumers see higher prices or feel more pessimistic about the economy, they could curtail their spending.If so, Walmart and Target will be just fine, at least in the short term. Both are known for low prices, so cautious consumers looking to trade down will come their way. Their scale gives them particular power in negotiating with suppliers to keep their prices looking favorable compared to the competition.Given that the enactment of some tariffs was delayed until after holiday merchandise was imported — and that many retailers say they have found ways to at least temporarily avoid passing on price increases to consumers — it’s likely that the retail industry will have a happy holiday season. But whatever happens, Walmart and Target will be a little happier than everyone else.To contact the author of this story: Sarah Halzack at email@example.comTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Michael Newman at firstname.lastname@example.orgThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Sarah Halzack is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering the consumer and retail industries.
