I don't know why anyone would shop at WS if the desired product was available at Bed Bath & Beyond. Often BB&B is less expensive and they have a SUPER customer service, all the time. You can return an item for exchange or refund for any reason, at any time. I damaged a pot through carelessness and returned it to BB&B after 90 days, without a receipt, and received a brand new pot, no questions asked.
Every time I've dealt with WS there has been at least a small hassle. If a store could have an ego, I'd say WS is pretentious and full of themselves.
No argument from me. Unfortunately, the selection at BB&B as far as All Clad is pretty limited. I haven't found any copper core AC there and the d5 AC line is still exclusive to W-S. If the item is at both stores, hands down buy at BB&B. If you get a gift and don't have a gift receipt, W-S won't take it back even if the W-S tag is on the box.
