Cost Plus World Market Expands Happy Returns Program

Happy Returns is expanding its hassle-free returns experience with Cost Plus World Market. Under an expanded agreement, World Market will host Happy Returns’ Return Bars in all of its 276 stores across 122 metro areas nationwide.

The expansion follows a successful pilot program that began in April and included 11 stores in Brooklyn, NY, Columbus, OH, Dallas, and Lubbock, TX.

Online shoppers from Happy Returns’ growing list of retail partners can now return products in person, without a box or label, at all World Market stores. Happy Returns said the program eliminates the hassle and wait of returns by mail for online shoppers and helps its location partners drive in-store traffic.

The program will be available in 276 stores in World Market’s network by the end of September.

“We are thrilled to grow with World Market, given the outstanding customer experience shoppers receive in their stores,” said David Sobie, co-founder and CEO of Happy Returns. “Our growth is accelerating, and we are driving value for retailers, location partners, and shoppers.”

By the end of September, Happy Returns said its network will span to more than 700 locations in 143 metro areas nationwide, almost doubling the current number of Return Bar locations.
