    Bed Bath & Beyond has more than 900 US stores.

    Bed Bath & Beyond is the latest retailer hit with a lawsuit over the collection of ZIP codes. The complaint, filed in US District Court in Boston, accuses the chain of violating state consumer privacy laws by collecting ZIP codes for credit card sales and then sending junk mail to consumers without permission. The plaintiff previously sued Michaels Stores on similar grounds. A Bed Bath & Beyond spokeswoman said the company had not seen the suit and could not comment.
