The Better Homes & Gardens brand came to Walmart stores in 1998 and ten years later expanded its existing gardening product line into the broader home category. Since then, the number of items has increased six-fold from 500 to over 3,000 today.
Major product categories include sheets, comforters and quilts; dinnerware and kitchen textiles; bath hardware, towels and rugs; home décor, such as decorative pillows, window treatments, candles and furniture; outdoor furniture and accessories; and live plants.
