Bed Bath & Beyond officials have announced the first set of stores they will be closing nationwide, and three locations in New Jersey are on the list.

Earlier this year, the struggling retailer announced the closure of some 150 stores in a bid to stabilize its finances and reverse falling sales.

Those 150 locations represent about 20% of its namesake stores, according to CNBC.

Bed Bath & Beyond grew from 1,478 stores to 955 between Q1 2020 and Q1 2022

On Thursday, the company released a list containing dozens of stores from coast to coast that will be closing.

In New Jersey, the following stores will close:

  • 30 International Drive in Flanders/Mt. Olive, Morris County
  • Route 9 in southern Manalapan
  • E. Ridgewood Avenue in Paramus

Five stores will close in New York (Farmingdale, Middletown, Mt. Vernon, New Hartford and Plattsburgh) and one in Pennsylvania (Wynnewood). No Delaware stores will close.

Company spokeswoman Julie Strider said in an email to,

We will continue to review our portfolio where it makes sense to profitably support our customers and our business. Our immediate focus is to support our teams, grow the business, ensure our stores, customers and partners are supported and improve returns to shareholders.

Details on clearance sales or when these stores will close were not immediately known.
