Company Overview Visit lnt.com website
Linens'n Things was founded by brothers-in-law Michael Feuer and Richard Thompson in 1972. At first, the business's main focus was selling imported linen goods to major department stores across the United States.
Linens'n Things grew rapidly for years until 2000, when their stock prices started falling dramatically. They began closing stores and laying off workers to help reduce their debt.
The company filed for bankruptcy in 2007, after several offers from various companies failed to be profitable enough. Liquidation sales continued through 2008, with all of their remaining stores closed down by March 2009.
Linens'n Things used to offer its customers home furnishings alongside bedding items like sheets and comforters; however, during the 1990s, they stopped carrying such products as furniture and rug cleaners.
Linens'n Things was the first major company to market bedding at affordable prices, and also offered a huge variety of items for each bedroom in a home. Their headquarters were located in Brooklyn, New York, but they had stores all around the country.
