In a last-minute twist, a popular chain may not be forced to close all of its stores in New York.

Update On Buy Buy Baby In New York State


Go Global Retail, which owns the children’s apparel company, Janie and Jack, hoped to purchase Buy Buy Baby from Bed Bath and Beyond and keep the Buy Buy Baby chain running.

Buy Buy Baby's parent company, Bed Bath and Beyond, recently announced plans to likely close all of its locations.

However, at the last minute, an agreement on valuation couldn't be reached, according to Go Global Retail CEO Jeff Streader.

"We were being fair in our offer. Sixth Street (Bed Bath & Beyond’s lead creditor) was not unreasonable but there was a difference in opinion on valuation,” he said. “We wish the IP bid winners success in their journey," he said.

Analysts believed Buy Buy Baby had a chance of a better future than Bed Bath and Beyond.
