The Cost Plus World Market chain handed out gift cards and tote bags to shoppers Thursday at its new location at the Fashion Center mall in Paramus to mark the grand opening of the store, which had its soft, or unadvertised, opening last week. The Paramus store is the company's first in North Jersey and its third in the state. Cost Plus World Market is a California-based chain that was acquired by Union Township-based Bed Bath & Beyond in 2012. The stores sell a mix of home decorative items and furnishings, and imported, non-perishable foods. Bed Bath bought the company as a way to continue to grow in markets that already have Bed Bath stores, and to increase its opportunities to bring new food items into the Bed Bath stores.
