    Be sure to check out our detailed stock analysis (click here). A few weeks back I took a look at the parallels between Best Buy and Circuit City, and although it's highly unlikely that Best Buy goes into bankruptcy, I think there are enough headwinds for the company that it remains a non-growth story for some time to come. However, what about the parallels between Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ: BBBY) and Linens 'n Things?

    Linens 'n Things began closing all of its brick and mortar locations back in 2008 and now operates as a pure online retailer. Unlike the similarities between Circuit City's and Best Buy's products, Bed Bath & Beyond's product line is much more diversified than that of Linens 'n Things. Bed Bath & Beyond stocks domestics and home furnishings across 1,100 of its eponymous stores, but it also operates the brands Christmas Tree Shops, World Market, Harmon and buybuy BABY.
