History

Home Outfitters originally launched in 1998 as Bed, Bath & More, before being revamped and relaunched under the new name in 1999.[2] The chain peaked at 69 locations in October 2014.[3]

In July 2014, HBC announced that it would begin integrating Home Outfitters into its Hudson's Bay retail division (including increased availability of its product line through Hudson's Bay locations and its website), along with the closure of 2 stores.[4] In 2016, HBC rebranded three Home Outfitters locations in Winnipeg under the banner Hudson's Bay Home as a pilot.[5]

In February 2019, HBC announced the closing of all 37 locations of Home Outfitters.[6] The chain ceased operation and closed all its stores at the end of July 2019.
