just had a Buy Buy Baby go up near me & was wondering if anyone has been to one & how comparable are they to Babies R Us?
It depends. I would say that BBB carries higher priced products and brands than BRU. I also like BBBs customer service much better.
BRU is good for clothing and gifts. And, if they both carry the same item I think BRU might be less expensive. But, BBB is in the same family as Bed, Bath & Beyond and I was actually able to use a 20% off coupon to buy our Britax Decathalon (which BRU doesn't even carry) and got it for cheaper than the Marathon was priced at BRU.
We bought our furniture from BBB. They carry higher-end brands there than BRU, and while you'll definitely pay more for it, their furniture is MUCH sturdier than BRU's and of far better quality.
Totally worth it in our opinion, especially if you are planning on having your baby use it long-term.
I have never been a fan of babies r us, so this is a little bias. We live by the BuyBuyBaby in Downers Grove and LOVE it. It's in a central area and I can do other things as well.
Anyways, they have a large selection and better quality brands and if they do not have in stock they will try to overnight it to you free of charge.
Customer service is superb. They train each associate in a specific department so they know the product well.
We will be teetering between target and buybuybaby
