To some Western New York shoppers, when they see a Bed Bath & Beyond coupon in their mailbox, it immediately gets tossed in the garbage as junk mail. But for some, when they see a 20% off coupon with their name on it, their heart flutters. Or even better - the rare “$10 off your purchase of $30 or more”? Those are GOLD for coupon enthusiasts.

If you’re like many of us and keep a Bed Bath & Beyond coupon stash in your glovebox to use on a rainy day, you’d better start using them - one local Bed Bath & Beyond will be closing soon. 

Bed Bath & Beyond To Close Western New York Location

Last year, Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. announced that it would be closing approximately 150 of its lower-performing stores, as well as reducing its workforce (aka layoffs). We’ve now learned that one of them is the chain’s Amherst location in The Boulevard. Ugh.

In addition to closing several stores and laying off workers, there’s more bad news - especially if you’re a fan of some of their specialty brands. The company also let it be known that three out of their nine private labels (Haven, Wild Sage, and Studio 3B) will be discontinued, and the six remaining brands will offer fewer items for sale. 

As of August 2022, there were 716 Bed Bath & Beyond locations in the United States. Approximately 25 of those stores are in New York State. After its Amherst location shuts its doors, there will be two Bed Bath & Beyond locations remaining in the Buffalo area; McKinley Mall and Clarence Mall. 

There used to be a fourth Buffalo-area location in Niagara Falls, but unfortunately, it was one of the many casualties of the last time BB&B decided to eliminate several locations nationwide last year.

The date that Bed Bath & Beyond at The Boulevard will close for good hasn’t been revealed - but I guess this is a good excuse to finally use the coupons you’ve been saving to get that fancy cooking new gadget you’ve had your eye on. But coupon and home decor lovers all over Western New York still hope their precious local Bed Bath & Beyond won’t be taken away from them.
