QUINCY — The Bed Bath & Beyond store in Quincy avoided the first cut of stores that were announced in September to be closing by the end of the year. However, the Quincy location now has signs throughout the store at 5100 Broadway indicating it will be closing.

Nothing on the signs indicates when the store will be closing.

A store manager contacted Wednesday afternoon said the Quincy store has “about 20 employees” and that signs about the closing were placed throughout the building on Tuesday. The manager then referred all other questions to Bed Bath & Beyond’s corporate office in Union, N.J.

A call by Muddy River News to the corporate office was transferred to the “corporate escalation team.” A recorded message said calls would be returned within 24 hours. 

Bed Bath & Beyond offers an array of home goods, such as bedding, bath items, home décor, furniture, beauty and fitness, and luggage. 

The struggling retailer released a list of 56 stores in September that are closing nationwide. At that time, store officials said they planned to close about 150 stores and trim its workforce by 20 percent. Those costs were believed to save an estimated $250 million in the current fiscal year.

Six Bed Bath & Beyond stores in Illinois previously were announced to close by the end of the year. Four of the stores are in the Chicago area: Gurnee, Schaumburg, Joliet, and Bourbonnais. The others are in Carbondale and Fairview Heights. Stores in Waterloo, Iowa, and Dubuque, Iowa, were on the list of 56. No stores to be closed on the original list were in Missouri.

USA Today reported that, as of May, the retailer operated 955 stores, including 769 Bed Bath & Beyond stores, 135 buybuy Baby stores and 51 stores under the names Harmon, Harmon Face Values or Face Values. As of February, it had roughly 32,000 employees.
