Bed Bath & Beyond has debuted an advisory board designed to provide consumers with ideas and solutions to help personalize their homes.
Members of the Home, Happier Team include culinary personality Katie Lee Biegel, interior designer Jeremiah Brent, storage and organization expert Eryn Donaldson and sleep wellness specialist Dr. Shelby Harris.
The quartet will make its debut on October 2 at the retailer’s recently remodeled New York City flagship store during a week-long Open House event. The Team will share advice with customers for each room of the home.
Additionally, the Open House events will run in Bed Bath & Beyond stores across the U.S. from September 27 to October 3 where shoppers will have access to exclusive deals.
