According to an email sent out to Bed, Bath and Beyond customers, the company is winding down all store operations.

<p>To Our Valued Customers:</p><p>Earlier today, Bed Bath &amp; Beyond Inc. filed for voluntary Chapter 11 protection.</p><p>We appreciate that our customers have trusted us through the most important milestones in their lives – from going to college, to getting married, to settling into a new home, to having a baby – and we wanted to reach out to you to explain what this means.</p><p>Our stores are open and serving customers. However, we have initiated a process to wind down operations.</p>

According to the release to investors, the company has filed for Chapter 11.

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.

What does this mean for customers?

  • Customers will be able to return and exchange purchases through May 24, 2023, for items that have been purchased before April 23, 2023
  • Gift Cards, Gift Certificates and Loyalty Certificates can be used through May 8, 2023
  • Customers will no longer be able to use coupons or Welcome Rewards+ discounts starting on April 26, 2023.
  • In-stock orders that are placed online prior to and after the bankruptcy filing are expected to be fulfilled.
  • If you have a registry, your registry can still be viewed.  The plan is to partner with another platform where you can transfer your data and finish your registry.

As of the filing, the Bed, Bath and Beyond, and buybuyBaby websites will remain functional.   No solid date has been set for the Amarillo store closure.

If we had waited a week, the media relations of Bed, Bath and Beyond, might not have lied to us about the store closing.  I guess using the term "current plans" was the loophole.
