What to expect at Bed Bath & Beyond closing store sales

Liquidation sales are underway at the first wave of 150 closing Bed Bath & Beyond stores — but don't expect to use the retailer's popular coupons during your final shopping trips.

Why it matters: The struggling New Jersey-based home goods chain confirmed the list of the first 56 stores holding going-out-of-business sales and told Axios that whether a closing store will accept coupons varies by location.

What they're saying: Company spokesperson Julie Strider told Axios that store closing sales “will commence and continue over the next few months.”

  • “Once a store closing is announced, we offer higher discounts on all items in the store as part of the closing process,” Strider said.

Yes, but: Strider said customers in the company's loyalty programs “can earn and redeem Welcome Rewards, Welcome Rewards+ and Beyond+ rewards” at closing stores.

Meanwhile, specific closing dates and when all sales will be final will vary by store, Strider said.

Between the lines: Axios randomly called select closing stores and learned the locations were expected to close between December and late January and no longer accept coupons or returns of merchandise.

Be smart: When shopping liquidation sales, compare prices to competitor stores to make sure you are getting a good deal.

  • Remember, when sales are final, items can't be returned so check products closely.
