Bed Bath & Beyond has launched a range of brand-new private label brands as it revamps its stores, and the homegoods chain is supporting those brands with a new advisory panel put in place to guide customers on how to maximize home decor needs with Bed Bath and Beyond products, including its own brands.

The Home, Happier Team is made up of industry experts across several categories within the store’s inventory.

The team includes Katie Lee Biegel (Culinary), Jeremiah Brent (Interior Design),Eryn Donaldson (Store & Org.) and Dr. Shelby Harris (Sleep). The experts will provide information and advice to customers on the products in their respective fields. Bed Bath & Beyond has a large selection of private label brands that have recently been expanded.
