Bed Bath & Beyond wasn’t supposed to be closing a store in Dutchess, Orange or Ulster counties, but now they apparently are.
Shoppers were shocked to learn that a local Bed Bath & Beyond store has been added to an already published list of stores marked for closure. In August, the retailer announced it would close only seven New York locations in Auburn, Canandaigua, Glenmont, Niagara Falls, Plainview, Portchester and Spring Valley.
Shoppers in the Hudson Valley were relieved that their local Bed Bath & Beyond stores were spared the closure, but apparently that’s no longer the case.
Store closure in the Mid-Hudson Valley
There are four Bed Bath & Beyond locations in the Mid Hudson area. Stores in Kingston, Newburgh, Middletown and Poughkeepsie have been supplying local residents with towels, bedding, kitchen appliances and other essentials for decades.
The store’s famous direct mail coupons have helped Hudson Valley homeowners buy household items while reducing the price by 20%. Ironically, the store has now announced that it is cutting 20% of its employees in a bid to prevent the company from going bankrupt. In addition to laying off workers, the store is also closing 150 locations, including one right in our backyard.
Closing of the first store in the Hudson Valley
This week, employees at Middletown Bed Bath & Beyond are preparing for the permanent closure of the location on Route 211. A clearance sale is currently underway and aims to get rid of all inventory before the store closes. A representative from the Orange Plaza store said there was no set date for the closure, but preparations were well advanced.
What about other stores in the Hudson Valley?
At this time, Bed Bath & Beyond locations in Kingston, Poughkeepsie and Newburgh are not publicly saying they are closing. The stores weren’t on the list of locations marked for liquidation, but then again, the Middletown Bed Bath & Beyond wasn’t either. A store representative told us that the remaining three locations are not currently scheduled to close.
