Linens N Things Background Information

Linens 'n Things was a Clifton, New Jersey-based big-box retailer specializing in home textiles, housewares, and decorative home accessories. The chain operated 571 stores in 47 U.S. states and six Canadian provinces, and had 7,300 employees as of December 2006. The company's business strategy was "to offer a broad selection of high quality, brand name home furnishings merchandise at exceptional everyday values, provide superior guest service, and maintain low operating costs."

Burdened with debt after private equity buyouts, the company announced it would shutter all remaining stores in October 2008. It was relaunched as an online-only retailer in February 2009 at its former domain name,, selling similar products as its brick-and-mortar stores had. As an online retailer, it ceased operating in 2018. In July 2020, the rights to Linens 'n Things were acquired by holding company Retail Ecommerce Ventures.
