Big Box Store in NJ Closes — But Still Asks For the Impossible
It's still there.
If you have been following the conflicting and now humerous signs at the now-closed Bed Bath & Beyond store in Mays Landing, we write yet another chapter.
Let's start from the beginning.
As the calendar turned to January, news broke that Bed Bath & Beyond was going through some big financial problems.
In an attempt to turn things around, the chain announced that dozens of stores would be closing, one of which was in Mays Landing, right on the Black Horse Pike.
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 at the beginning of May...
And now heading into June...
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...
