Bed Bath & Beyond started 2022 off in the same way that it kicked off 2021 – with dozens of store closures.

This action is part of Bed Bath & Beyond’s strategy to strengthen its brand by closing underperforming or “redundant” stores, as we first reported in July of 2020. And now, Bed Bath & Beyond has announced a new batch of closures.

As part of the retailer’s revitalization efforts, 200 of its stores (about 20% of its physical locations) were scheduled to close in stages. The first wave of store closures began with over 60 in the second half of 2020, with 43 more stores permanently shutting their doors last year at this time.

On August 31st, Bed Bath & Beyond has announced that they have identified 150 under-performing stores and begun the process of closing them. The closures will take place across multiple states and will include the lay off of 20% of corporate employees.

This also include the discontinuation of three of their brands: Studio 3B, Haven, and Wild Sage. This makes sense as we’ve seen deep discounts on these brands just recently.

In addition to the online sales, if you’re located near one of the impacted stores, it may be worth keeping your eye out for a liquidation sale. Inventory was deeply discounted during prior store closures.

    I am always sorry to see store closings however, in this instance, I am not surprised. I had more than one awful experience with Bed, Bath & Beyond in November and December and I found in all instances, their customer servicve was virtually non-existent. I will not shop there again.

      Same here. Long wait to checkout, and they changed their return policy. I used to shop there for their return policy even if it meant paying a little more because I knew if something went wrong, I could return it without a hassle. Not anymore. No more reason to pay more.

    • David

      Agreed. A terrible shopping experience and forget about returns! Not surprised they’re having troubles.
      This has been going on for years and isn’t COVID-related.

    Is there a new list of the stores that are closing? I don’t see a link to it.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Kiana! A list of stores that will be closing was not immediately released. We’ll be sure to update the post with any new information, as it becomes available! ❤️

    I feel awful for those laid off. Lots of mass layoffs recently, I was surprised. I don’t see it in the news but Linkedin is full of it

    • Em C

      Lots of layoffs, but the main story seems to be the extremely tight labor market and low unemployment. It’s an odd situation for sure.

    I purchased a lingerie bag used it one time. When I took it out of the machine I saw that the zipper pull fell off and I couldnt open the bag to get my wet bra out. I took the whole thing “as is” to the store. They refused to refund my money as I didnt have a receipt. I had them cut open the bag so that I could retrieve my item. Besides not getting a refund the sales “help” was extremely rude and condescending. No wonder they are closing

    I had an awful experience with them recently as well. From customer service on the phone to the store as well. Vowed never to shop there again!
