The Bed Bath & Beyond store in Chelsea, New York, will have a team from the socially developed product company Quirky in their store window to listen to customers’ suggestions for great new products the company can make. If the invention is approved and made, then the inventor (or suggester) would get a share of the profits. Quirky is a subsidiary product company of Bed Bath & Beyond. They work with a ‘team of world-class designers and engineers to bring ideas from a simple sketch, to the store, to your home.’
Currently, innovative products include the Pivot Power Surge, whose ‘inventor,’ Jake Zien, has earned nearly $21,000 in profit, and the PowerCurl Apple Cord Wrap, whose ‘inventor,’ Jeff Scholen, has earned over $14,000 to date. If you won’t be able to make it to Chelsea’s Bed Bath & Beyond store to tell the Quirky team your fresh idea, you can always submit it online.
