We registered at the Bay and Home Outfitters. 

The Bay had some things Home Outfitters didn’t have, but Home Outfitters had much of the same stuff for cheaper prices. I was happy with the customer service we got from both places. No problems what so ever.

We registered at Sears and a local place (Room2Remember).  Both had positives and negatives. 

If you do Sears, make sure you check in with them regularly to make sure that things haven’t been shipped to the store!  We had a few gifts that we weren’t notified of and only found out when we sent out thank you cards.

Bed Bath and Beyond.  There’s one right by our house.  I hear we can get cash refunds, but even if we don’t, we like their stuff.

We are going to register at the bay, and probably one other place. Not sure yet.

We did the bay, bed bath and beyond and I had an amazon registry for some of the more one off or “inspired by” ideas I had like camping gear and board games.

I also registered with the Bay & home outfitters(deco decouverte) but only for my bridal shower since my guests were more inclined towards gifting cash. To be honest I was not impressed with the selection. Most things are overpriced & I couldn’t validate scanning them (200$ bed sheets?!).

We registered at William Sonoma.   I am thinking about also registering at Home Outfitters.

@Snow00774:  Pretty well, but I was fairly open with people when they asked what stuff off our registry we REALLY wanted that what we considered favourites were mostly on amazon. The best thing about the amazon registry to me is the ability for guests just to mark stuff as purchased and then get it wherever it’s cheapest or from a brick and mortar store if they prefer.  We didn’t get any really wild interpretations.

We’re registered at both Sears and Home Outfitters. Honestly, I could have gone without registering at Sears. I had a really hard time finding items there that I actually wanted (this is probably due to the fact that the Sears where I live is quite small and doesn’t have a good selection). I found tons of things to register for at Home Outfitters though! They also seem a lot cheaper than Sears for most things.
