Sep. 19—None of the Bed Bath & Beyond stores in New Mexico, including Santa Fe, were on the first list of 56 of about 150 stores set for closure in 2022 that the Union, N.J., domestic merchandise retailer announced Sept. 15.
The Bed Bath & Beyond at Santa Fe Place mall opened in 2016 alongside Cost Plus World Market, both occupying the former Regal Cinemas space. A new store sign was installed for Bed Bath & Beyond in March.
Bed Bath & Beyond had previously been at the Cerrillos Marketplace, 3320 Cerrillos Road, since 2002. Defined Fitness currently fills that space.
Bed Bath & Beyond in August announced intentions to close about 150 "lower-producing" stores after same-store sales dropped 26 percent in the second quarter over the prior year.
New Mexico has four Bed Bath & Beyond stores, with two in Albuquerque and one each in Santa Fe and Las Cruces.
Other than California with eight announced closures, Western states were mostly spared other than single closures in Tucson, Ariz.; Phoenix; Beaverton, Ore.; Sparks, Nev.; and Lakewood, Wash.
