Saying Goodbye to Buy Buy Baby: Top Alternatives for Baby Shopping in West Michigan
Recently, Bed Bath and Beyond, the parent company of baby store Buy Buy Baby filed for Chapter 11th bankruptcy and announced that they would be closing all of their stores by the end of June 2023.
While soon-to-be and new parents are probably cheering at the steep discounts that they will be able to snag while the stores are liquidating, that joy will soon fade when Grand Rapids' biggest baby store closes it doors, leaving parents wondering where they can shop now.
Thankfully, there are plenty of local businesses in West Michigan who can help you find things in person for your baby (other than the big box stores) So you can skip the awkward amazon delivery and sending back when that crib isn't exactly what you were looking for.
