Earlier this year, the struggling retailer announced that some 150 stores would be closing in an attempt to stabilize its finances and turn around declining sales.

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

Bed Bath & Beyond shrunk from 1,478 stores to 955 between the first quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2022

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

In New Jersey, the following stores will be closing:

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

Company spokesperson Julie Strider said in an email to Bloomberg.com,

We will continue to review our portfolio where it makes sense to profitably support our customers and business. Our immediate focus is on supporting our teams, growing the business, making sure our stores, customers and partners are supported and improving returns to shareholders.

Details on any liquidation sales or when these stores will be closed by was not immediately known.
