Bed Bath and Beyond set to close Pueblo store

A sign can be seen announcing a store closing sale at Pueblo's Bed Bath and Beyond location, 5737 N. Elizabeth St., on Friday.

The Bed Bath and Beyond in Pueblo has joined a list of store locations the company plans to close as it pursues a strategic restructuring to turn its business around.

The company announced in September that it would close 150 stores and eliminate 20% of its corporate staff to strengthen its financial positioning following weak second-quarter sales. At that time, the Pueblo location at 5737 North Elizabeth St. wasn’t part of the initial 56 stores the company was planning to close.

The Pueblo location joined the list after the company reported slumping third-quarter results earlier this month.

In an email to the Chieftain, Bed Bath and Beyond representatives said the company previously announced it was closing “approximately 150 underperforming stores in support of our current optimization strategy.”
