Rochester, Minnesota Bed Bath & Beyond Store Is Closing

I got a tip that "store closing" signs were up at the Bed Bath & Beyond store in Rochester, Minnesota.  I already had to run into Michael's today to get a few craft supplies so before I bopped in there, I stopped in to see for myself if Bed Bath & Beyond was actually closing.

The signs aren't huge on the front doors but sadly, they are there.

When Is the Rochester, Minnesota Bed Bath & Beyond Store Closing?

First, as I told the employees today, I am just so sad to see another business close and I am sorry they have to go through this.  Last week, Mestad's closed abruptly leaving brides with a ton of questions.  The same day, Gray Duck Theater & Coffeehouse announced they were officially done and that a new business would be carrying on their spirit and adding some new fun to the space.

When I saw the latest list of Bed Bath & Beyond store closings, I actually breathed a sigh of relief that Rochester wasn't on the list of 80+ stores.  I don't want that heartbreak or stress for the employees because I know what it is like.  My daughter was part of the crew when the Shopko stores closed a few years ago.

Sadly, it is closing and according to the employees that I spoke with, the store will close in about 8 to 12 weeks.

FYI - the entire store is 10% off right now.  I took advantage of that while I was there today asking questions.  If you go and shop, please remember to be kind.
