ALAMEDA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 6, 2018--What started in 1958 as one San Francisco man’s entrepreneurial spirit of selling imported baskets from a pier off of Fisherman’s Wharf, has evolved into a specialty home goods retailer with more than 275 stores across the U.S. and a robust e-commerce site today. In honor of its 60 th Anniversary, Cost Plus World Market ( www.worldmarket.com ) has launched a “60 Makeovers in 60 Days” Sweepstakes now through September 30, 2018 at www.worldmarketsweepstakes.com.
