The corporation blamed supply chain challenges for the earnings and sales shortfalls. "Overall sales were pressured despite customer demand due to the lack of availability with replenishment inventory and supply chain stresses that had an estimated $100 million, or mid-single-digit, impact on the quarter and an even higher impact in December," said Mark Tritton, the company's president, and CEO.

Tritton, on the other hand, was upbeat about the future, telling investors that the company's prospects were bright "As evidenced by our Beyond+ loyalty program, which grew by nearly half a million members after one of our largest new subscriber quarters, the Bed Bath banner's customer acquisition strategy is gaining traction. Our buybuy BABY banner is still growing in double digits, and we're on track to hit $1.3 billion in sales in our first year of transformation, well ahead of our investor day targets, all while improving profitability and market share."
