Bed Bath and Beyond will be closing roughly 60 stores around the country and we hope our SouthCoast stores are not on the list.

I've been a Bed Bath and Beyond customer for so long and although I know I can always just shop the store online, there's something about the in store shopping experience I enjoy much more.

Part of the reason I look forward to my visits to Bed Bath and Beyond in Dartmouth is when I get to use the life-size 20 percent off coupons that come in the mail every week. I have an endless supply of those bad boys in the console of my Toyota. Oh, and I also make sure I clip the five and ten dollar coupons, too.

What I love about the staff at Bed Bath and Beyond is that they will take and combine these coupons, no problem.They're not like, "Sorry, just one per purchase, please." They have no problem applying multiple savings for their customers and I appreciate that.

The store locations that will be closing have not yet been released and won't happen until shortly after the holiday season. Check out the MassLive article.

Bed Bath and Beyond had been under the same CEO, Steven Temares, for the past 16 years. This termination of stores is under a new CEO, Mary Winston. Winston spoke out about the closing of the stores, saying, “With this action we are increasing the profitability of our remaining portfolio and believe that our remaining fleet will benefit from our renewed focus on driving traffic and operating efficiency".

She also shed light on the fact that not all stores closing will be Bed Bath and Beyond; about 20 will be their partner stores BuyBuy Baby, Harmon Face Values and World Market.
