After months of anticipation, HomeGoods finally launched its online store, HomeGoods.com, on September 28. HomeGoods brick-and-mortar stores around the country (all 820-plus of them) are already beloved spots for everything from gifts to holiday decor to, obviously, home goods, and now, fans near and far can shop its selection of affordable, can’t-wait-to-show-it-off finds online.
Originally announced in November 2020, HomeGoods.com brings the blend of products for the home that shoppers have come to know and love in stores nationwide to the internet. The brand-new site initially features a curated selection of items similar to what shoppers can find in-store, with categories that include bedding, bath, decorative pillows, kitchen goods, seasonal decor, pet gear, and storage and organization tools. New items will be added regularly, and—just like the stores—the online shop offers an assortment of items in different styles and from a range of brands.
“We are thrilled to bring a second way for our passionate shoppers to discover and shop an assortment they know and love,” says John Ricciuti, President of HomeGoods, in the release announcing the launch. “We hope our customers find the same excitement shopping HomeGoods online as they do exploring the aisles of our stores.”
Any true HomeGoods fan will agree that part of the joy of shopping there is wandering the aisles and finding that just-right knick-knack or throw pillow when you least expect it—or finding something you didn’t even know you needed tucked between a stack of serving platters and seasonal table decor. While the new online HomeGoods shopping experience can’t quite replicate that (can any online store?), it does make shopping from HomeGoods much easier and more accessible.
With just the click of a button, home decor fanatics can order kitchenware, seasonal finds, and more straight to their door. The website has a new arrivals section so you can always see what’s freshly in stock. And, of course, the whole site will offer the same affordable prices and high-value items that you’d expect from HomeGoods, so shopping online doesn’t come at a premium.
HomeGoods.com has an inspirational section—The Idea Shop—to help inspire and guide your decorating, too, so you can discover new trends and styling ideas while you shop, just like you might in a physical HomeGoods store. In other words, shopping that signature HomeGoods collection of great finds for the home online is practically the same as heading to the store—just without having to sit in traffic or drag all your purchases out to the car.
Of course, the new HomeGoods shopping experience won’t completely erase the need to visit a store in-person—for true home decor aficionados, nothing beats feeling your new throw blanket or seeing your newest charcuterie board in person before you buy, and the stores and online shop will offer different (but comparable) selections. HomeGoods.com is meant to be a complementary shopping option to in-store shopping, not a replacement, and so if you truly can’t resist buying a new decorative gourd (or several) every fall or checking out the latest HomeGoods gems every week, you’ll probably end up scouring stores online and in-person. (We don’t blame you.)
Most items purchased online can be returned via mail or in-store. HomeGoods will continue to expand the online store, starting with gift offerings and festive decor ahead of the 2021 holiday season. Visit HomeGoods.com to see the online selection and find the store nearest you.
