SEATTLE — A few retail rivals will be giving Amazon a run for its money.

A recent Wall Street Journal analysis found that at least one brick-and-mortar store, Bed Bath and Beyond, had prices about 6.5 percent lower on about 30 products that were also available at Amazon.com.

The newspaper found that one factor that’s helping Bed Bath and Beyond are the 20 percent off coupons it sends out to customers each month.

The Puget Sound Business Journal also reports that Overstock.com will now price all of its books the same as Amazon.
