Bankrupt Big Box Store in NJ Closes But Still Says “Come in & see!”
Yep, it's still there.
For those that have been following the saga of the conflicting signs at the now-closed Bed Bath & Beyond store in Mays Landing, here is another chapter.
As the calendar turned to January, news broke that Bed Bath & Beyond was going through some rather big financial problems.
In an attempt to turn things around, the chain announced that lots of stores would be closing, one of which was on the Black Horse Pike in Mays Landing.
At the end of March, that store wrapped up its clearance sale and closed for good.
Seems pretty straightforward, right?
Not so much.
Just before the Mays Landing store announced it would be closing, Bed Bath & Beyond remodeled the store a bit, and those improvements were trumpeted with big banners that were right in front of the store.
Ironically, those banners were never taken down as their liquidation sale began...
...which gave the impression that either you were supposed to be excited that the store was closing or their "better shopping" experience wasn't very "better."
Days after the store officially closed in March, that banner was still there.
In the middle of April, you guessed it...
And here we are in the middle of May...
If anyone is interested in guessing how long that banner will stay up, I'd love to hear from you.
Meanwhile, if you are sad to see BB&B close, let's take a trip down retail memory lane...
