TWIN FALLS • Bed Bath & Beyond is the latest store to open at the Canyon Park West shopping center in Twin Falls.
The 20,000-square-feet retail store opened June 23 and joins Dick’s Sporting Goods, which opened March 27. Bed Bath & Beyond sells domestic merchandise and home furnishings for bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and dining rooms.
Anna Foster and Bonnie McMullen shopped at the store Monday afternoon. The Jerome neighbors said they travel to Twin Falls to shop together at least twice a week. Bed Bath & Beyond now gives them another reason to make a trip to Twin Falls.
“I was happy to see Bed Bath & Beyond. We needed something like that here,” Foster said. “I’ll be here regularly. They were very nice and have good employees with good customer service.”
There are about 1,000 Bed Bath & Beyond stores in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Canada. The Twin Falls store is located at 1933 Fillmore Street and is open Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Norma Odiaga of Jerome was walking back to her vehicle Monday to retrieve a Bed Bath & Beyond coupon she forgot. Odiaga found the under-bed storage containers she was looking for, but said she did not like the stores along the canyon rim.
“I would have liked to see a park or at least set it back quite a ways,” Odiaga said. “I’m not pleased to have this on our rim.”
Patti Stumpf, who lives in Twin Falls, said she likes having Bed Bath & Beyond closer to home.
“I shopped at them a lot in Boise,” Stumpf said. “Dick’s hits a specific market that was not here before, women’s golf and soccer. I think we have enough restaurants.”
Other Canyon Park West stores are planning to open later this summer and fall.

Project administrator Tina Luper said in an email Monday that Petco is set to open July 27.
Noodles & Company is tentatively set to open in October. Noodles & Company is a fast-casual restaurant headquartered in Broomfield, Colo., that offers international and American noodle dishes, as well as soups, salads, pasta and sandwiches. The restaurant will feature free wireless Internet and a phone app to place orders online.
Erin Murphy, senior manager of communications for Noodles & Company, said the company plans to hold a grand opening and a hiring fair. The company usually hires between 25 to 35 employees including manager, general manager and the manager team. She encouraged interested people to go to noodles.com/jobs.
“We typically don’t begin that process until we are closer to the opening date,” Murphy said.
Murphy said the restaurant offers noodle and pasta dishes from around the world.
“Everything from indulgent to healthy from spicy to Wisconsin Mac & Cheese,” she said.
Other stores at Canyon Park West that will open soon are Petco, Ross Dress for Less, Mattress Firm, Men’s Wearhouse and makeup store Ulta. A pad site west of the Twin Falls Visitor Center was being targeted as a restaurant in April.
Signs for Petco and Ulta hang over building entrances, but construction was still going on inside Ulta Monday. Construction appears finished inside Petco, but shelving and merchandise has not been added yet.
A spokeswoman for Ulta told the Times-News in April that the company is tentatively set to open its Twin Falls store July 17. Phone calls to Ulta and other company headquarters to confirm dates were not returned Monday.
Ulta, Mattress Firm and Petco filed building permit applications Sept. 30 with the Planning and Zoning Department. Ulta has its sights on a 10,000-square-foot store with a valuation of $528,100. The Chicago-based retailer of salon products and services has a Pocatello store. Mattress Firm’s application calls for 4,030 square feet valued at $375,000. It is a bedding specialty retailer and will be next to Idaho Central Credit Union.
Petco’s application calls for a 12,234-square-foot store worth an estimated $646,000. Petco sells pet products and services.
