Major Retailer Files for Bankruptcy to Begin ‘Winding Down Operations’
Another major retailer may soon bite the dust after the company filed for bankruptcy.
Bed, Bath & Beyond could soon be a thing of the past. The company, along with buybuy BABY, has filed for Chapter 11. The company thanked its customers over the years when it made the announcement.
"Thank you to all of our loyal customers. We have made the difficult decision to begin winding down our operations."
Stores Remain Open, For Now
The website says the hundreds of stores that haven't already been closed over the past few years will remain open, at least for now.
The Company's 360 Bed Bath & Beyond and 120 buybuy BABY stores and websites will remain open and continue serving customers as the Company begins its efforts to effectuate the closure of its retail locations.
