Bed Bath &Beyond Inc. has stated they plan to close approximately 21 percent of its namesake stores, or 200 locations, over the next two years. The home goods retailer, which is New Jersey-based, also operates buybuy Baby, World Market, and Harmon Face Values, stated the closing stores would “mostly” be Bed Bath & Beyond stores during an earnings call with analysts. Back in January, the company officials stated they still planned to close 60 stores across all concepts, which was originally announced back in October 2019. However, at the beginning of the year, company officials stated 20 to 40 of the 40 Bed Bath & Beyond stores scheduled to close would be delayed until the first half of 2020.

CEO Mark Tritton stated that the closings would save the company between $250 and $350 million annually after one time costs. Tritton stated that during the coronavirus pandemic the company felt across their business during their fiscal first quarter, which included loss of sales due to the temporary store closures.

As of May 30, 2020, the company had 1,478 stores, which include 955 Bed Bath & Beyond stores nationwide and in Canada, a 262 stores under the name of World Market, Cost Plus World Market or Cost Plus, 127 buybuy bAby Stores, 81 stores under Christmas Tree Shops, Christmas Tree Shops andThat! or andThat!, and 53 stores. under the names Harmon Face Values, Face Values, and Harmon.

The company closed 21 Bed Bath stores during the quarter which ended May 30, and closed 14 sites in late 2019. Through a press release, Tritton stated, “We believe Bed Bath & Beyond will emerge from this crisis even stronger, given the strength of our brand, our people and our balance sheet.”
