Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. /zigman2/quotes/209801102/composite BBBY +4.31% late Friday joined several other large retailers in requiring customers to wear face coverings while shopping at their stores. The requirement will be in effect starting next Friday so the company can communicate with customers and train staff, it said. The company operates about 1,500 stores in North America under the eponymous brand as well as Buybuy Baby, Cost Plus World Market and others. Shares of Bed Bath & Beyond fell 0.4% in the extended session Friday after ending the regular trading day down 2.6%. Earlier Friday, Home Depot Inc. /zigman2/quotes/208081807/composite HD -0.32% announced a mask policy, and in previous days retailers such as Walmart Inc. /zigman2/quotes/207374728/composite WMT +0.52% and Target Corp. /zigman2/quotes/207799045/composite TGT +0.66% had taken similar measures.
