Bed Bath & Beyond has unveiled the first group of stores that it plans to shutter as part of its ongoing restructuring efforts.
In July, the struggling home goods retailer said that it would close about 200 stores during the next two years in an effort to “right-size” its real estate portfolio, with the majority of the closings being its namesake banner. The first batch of stores, 63 in all, will shutter by the end of the year, reported USA Today.
The following 63 stores are slated to close by the end of 2020, according to the report. (As of May 30, 2020, the company had a total of 1,478 stores, including 955 Bed Bath & Beyond stores.)
