Now, with their e-commerce store doing better than ever, they’ve decided that having physical retail spaces just isn’t worth the rent, and who can blame them. It’s not like that isn’t the truth.
For those who like the in-person shopping experience like ourselves, because we appreciate being able to touch our towels before we buy them, this is an inconvenience. However, for employees, this might be devastating, so our hearts are with them!
Until then, because it will take some time to decide which ones they will be shutting down, almost all Bed Bath & Beyond stores are open – so get in there while you can, friends!
Our fingers are crossed that this is the last mass closure we see for a while – even if that is kind of unrealistic. We can only take so much!
