Bed Bath & Beyond has announced that it's closing an additional 149 stores across the United States. Unfortunately, according to CNN Business, seven of those stores are right here in Michigan. And even more, unfortunately, one of them is the Okemos location inside the Meridian Mall

Bed Bath & Beyond Store Closures

With the closure of the Okemos location, Greater Lansing will be left with no Bed Bath & Beyond locations.

Just last month (January 10, 2023), WILX News 10 reported that the West Lansing Bed Bath & Beyond location was going to be closing. It was one of 10 Michigan stores, at the time, that were getting closed in an effort to stave off declaring bankruptcy.

All in all, Bed Bath & Beyond will be closing more than half of its current 760 stores nationwide.

Michigan Bed Bath & Beyond Locations That are Closing

The Okemos location is one of seven Michigan spots that are closing, the others include

  • G-3605 Miller Road in Flint, Michigan
  • 3050 Beeline Road Suite 30 in Holland, Michigan
  • 5930 South Westnedge Avenue in Portage, Michigan
  • 4420 Bay Road in Saginaw, Michigan
  • 650 John R. Road in Troy, Michigan
  • 35615 Warren Road in Westland, Michigan

The Lansing State Journal spoke to Stacey Keating, who is the vice president of corporate communications for CBL Properties, which owns the Meridian Mall. She said their "leasing team is working diligently to find a replacement tenant."

For the time being, you'll be happy to know that the closure of the Okemos store isn't immediate, as there will be "store closing sales [that] will continue over the next few weeks and months".

These Michigan Restaurants Have All Sadly Closed Since Appearing on National TV

You'd think an appearance on a national TV show like Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives or Restaurant: Impossible would guarantee success for a restaurant.

That hasn't been the case for these six restaurants, all of which have closed after being featured on national television.
