Bed Bath & Beyond to close Montgomery, Opelika stores
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Bed Bath & Beyond will close its stores in Montgomery and Opelika as the embattled home goods retailer weighs filing for bankruptcy. Store closing signs were posted to the doors of both locations on Saturday.
These locations were not on the list of 87 store closures the company released last week. The chain also announced plans to shutter about 150 locations last summer.
The Montgomery store moved to EastChase Parkway in 2008 after spending about a decade on the Eastern Boulevard.
The closure will mark another blow to East Chase Market Center, which lost Dick’s Sports Goods in July. Dick’s later reopened the store as a clearance outlet.
The Opelika store has been a part of the Tiger Town lifestyle center since the mid-2000s.
As of Saturday, all merchandise at both stores was 10% off - all sales final. Coupons are only accepted from those who are rewards members.
A Bed Bath & Beyond spokesperson told CNN the company missed an interest payment last week as the struggling chain fights to stay in business.
Closing dates for the Montgomery and Opelika locations weren’t immediately available.
