I set up quite a few registeries, partially because my mom drove me nuts since quite a bit of it was at BB&B but quite a few guests didn’t have one near them.

I tried to set stuff up at Sears.  It was horrible, few people even knew anything about their registry and I had trouble finding this to register for.  I think I had a total of 3 things.  The shelves were actually mostly empty and stuff wasn’t organized.  The kitchen section looked like a closing out sale.  I did end up using the registry coupons to get a mattress cover and pillow protectors though when they were on a good sale, so it wasn’t a total waste!

i’m so curious why you guys went Sears and not the Bay. I am a Bay superfan and we had a great experience. We are also doing Home Outfitters…

Really great info though, I wish I read this thread before registering : )

We did Home Outfitters and Hudson’s Bay.  I’d def recommend the Bay over Sears.

@mu_t:  I did the Bay as well.  BB&B was just better.  I was having problems finding enough at the Bay & HO to satisfy my mom.

I also did C&B just for me!  That one was fun even though few people knew about it.

I love Home Outfitters. I can go in there and come out 3 hours later with half the store. We are for sure registered there, and probably nowhere else. We have everything we need already really, but HO just has some awesomely cool shit that I can’t resist.

I would highly recommend the Bay, and Crate & Barrel. I’m not registering, but the weddings I’ve been involved in all registered there and both were a breeze. Great service for both the couple as well as guests.
