I love Home Goods, along with its sister stores like TJ Maxx and Marshalls. I love bargain hunting and love shopping for home. It's weird, but I hate going to the mall, shopping for clothes. I think it's because I don't look good in the clothes I try on. Some people go shopping when they are depressed, but I get more depressed after shopping for clothes.
So, now I am into shopping for home: kitchen, bath, furnitures, rugs, etc. Home Goods have all of these at much discounted price. Most of their products are pretty good quality. They are not super highend, but they have stuff that Macy's or Bloomingdales would carry. The furniture is limited to smaller accent items, such as arm chairs, coffee tables, night stands. You can find decent leather arm chair for $250!! They also have great selection of table lamps.
As for kitchen stuff, you can find nice pots and pans at good price, some name brands like Calphalon, All-Clad, and Le Creuset. The serving plate selection is not bad either, but you will have tough time finding a whole dinner set. You can scour all Home Goods location and build your collection if you have the patience and time. My sister got a full set of Villeroy & Boch coffee set once by doing that. :-)
Bath selection is pretty nice. For under $10, you can find nice thick Egyptian cotton towels. It sure beats going to Bed Bath and Beyond.
After shopping at Home Goods, I have hard time shopping at other places like Crate and Barrel. I have several hundreds of dollars worth of gift cards at Crate and Barrel, but I have hard time using it because I can find the same stuff for so much cheaper at Home Goods.
Bottom line: You won't be sorry. If there is one in your neighborhood, go check it out. It's kind of fun to browse around all kinds of goodies, and you might find some good bargain for your home.
