Bed Bath and Beyond is going above and beyond.

The home goods giant’s forthcoming store in Sunset Park’s Liberty View Industrial Plaza will include a bunch of firsts for the national chain, including a “Born in Brooklyn” corner featuring items made in the borough as a means of supporting local manufacturers, a company spokeswoman said.

“We want to do more for and with our customers in the Sunset Park community and become their destination for the home,” said Leah Drill, a spokeswoman for Bed Bath & Beyond, Inc. “We are also working to support the local design community.”

And the kitchen appliance purveyors will put some of their own wares to use in a food hall that will feature Kings County delicacies, according to Drill, who was light on specific dishes but promised “American fare” and booze. Locals will also be able to take cooking classes at an event space in the works, and a coffee bar will serve Joe from Williamsburg roaster Toby’s Estate, she said.

Bed Bath and Beyond signed a lease with the building’s owner, Salmar Properties, in January and planned on opening earlier this autumn, but the company hit construction delays and is now aiming for mid-December. It is also bringing along three subsidiaries that will occupy spaces at Liberty View — infant store Buybuy Baby, grocery Cost Plus World Market, and beauty product purveyor Face Values, which will have its own salon, Drill said.

The foursome will be the latest high-profile additions to the commercial complex. Outlet store Saks Off Fifth opened at the Plaza earlier this month. And online retail megalith Amazon plans to open a distribution center in the space.

Reasonable discourse

Since Fairways raised prices on organic tampons, I'll succumb to this vacuous hell. Or maybe I'll start shopping online, like an ar534073.

Whole Foods is a fraud. I bought what I thought was free range broccoli and discovered it came from plants with roots, just like ordinary broccoli.
