Bed Bath & Beyond closing 800 stores


Bed Bath & Beyond is temporarily closing 800 stores due to the coronavirus pandemic, but plans to keep approximately 700 “essential” stores open with reduced hours.

The New Jersey-based home goods retailer announced Thursday that it will close stores without health and beauty departments on Friday until April 3.

According to a news release, the stores staying open are “essential” because they “sell health care, personal care, infant care, cleaning supplies, or food and beverages.”

The essential stores include Bed Bath & Beyond stores that have health and personal care departments, the company's buybuy BABY and Harmon store concepts.

Bed Bath & Beyond officials did not immediately respond to USA TODAY's request for comment about which locations will stay open and which will close. The retailer's store locator can be used to find stores with specific departments but hours did not appear to be updated Thursday night.
