WASHINGTON — You may not want to throw out those Bed Bath and Beyond coupons quite yet.
While the home goods chain is no longer accepting its famous 20% off coupons after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, at least two retailers are encouraging customers to redeem those coupons at their stores instead.
The Container Store announced Wednesday it will accept Bed Bath and Beyond coupons for a limited time.
"Considering recently announced retailer closings, The Container Store will offer a 20% discount off any single item through May 31, 2023, for customers who bring a competitor’s blue coupon to any store location," the retailer announced in a press release.
Big Lots also announced that its stores would offer any customer with a Bed Bath & Beyond coupon 20% of their entire purchase of $50 or more. That deal runs through May 7.
Are Bed Bath and Beyond stores closing?
All 360 remaining Bed Bath & Beyond stores, as well as the 120 Buy Buy Baby sister stores owned by the company, will be closing sometime in the next few months.
According to the April 23 bankruptcy filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Bed Bath & Beyond said it would be starting an orderly wind down of its operations while seeking a buyer for all or some of its businesses. In the bankruptcy filing, the retailer said it anticipates closing all of its stores by June 30.
While the remaining Bed Bath & Beyond stores will stay open for now, store closing deals kicked off on Wednesday, April 26.
Bed Bath & Beyond said it expects to process returns and exchanges in accordance with its usual policies until May 24 for items purchased prior to Sunday.
Any purchases made during the store closing sales will be final, the company warned.
