Cost Plus World Market, 210 Forum Drive: Late January 2020   2 comments

Posted at 11:41 pm in closing







Google calls Cost Plus World Market a "furniture store". I had never thought of it that way. The only time I went inside this (or any World Market), I was attracted by the food aisles, and didn't really notice any furnishing. Indeed, I think the only thing I've ever had from the chain was a gift of some exotic chocolate bars one birthday.

Commenter Rashaad Egister pre-called this closing back in September of 2019. Apparently World Market was bought by Bed, Bath & Beyond back in 2012, and is caught up in a round of closings for that chain.

  1. I went by this store last weekend. There was very little left in it.
    The standard discount was 60% and they had reduced the size of the store by more than half.
    I'd be surprised if it were open past this next weekend.

  2. I used to work at a World Market. Many products are ridiculously overpriced for the quality. Each cashier is expected to sign up 30% of their customers for the "Explorer" program. The problem is, many people don't want to buy their overpriced stuff on a regular basis, so they don't feel a need to have a card for this store. And if you do sign up, you don't earn points quickly and many coupons are not worthwhile.
