25 Businesses That Could Replace Bed Bath & Beyond at the Meridian Mall
Another store is closing in the Meridian Mall, this time it's Bed Bath and Beyond. With the closing of this store, located at 1982 W Grand River Ave in Okemos, what does that mean for the Meridian Mall as a whole and what store could take Bed Bath and Beyond's place?
According to the Lansing State Journal, here's what shoppers can expect:
The Lansing area is losing its final Bed Bath & Beyond store, with the company announcing it will close its Okemos store this year.
In a store closing list updated Tuesday, which includes about 290 stores, the Okemos location at 1982 W. Grand River Ave. is listed. Going out of business signs can be seen at its Meridian Mall storefront.
CBL Properties, which owns the mall, has been monitoring the Bed Bath & Beyond situation closely and it's unfortunate the store is impacted by the decision to close more stores nationwide, said Stacey Keating, vice president of corporate communications for CBL Properties.
"We are unsure about the timing of the store’s closure, but our leasing team is working diligently to find a replacement tenant," she said, deferring further questions to Bed Bath & Beyond.
Online shopping has hurt malls. Why go to the mall when you can shop at home in your pajamas? Well, you can't grab a piece of Sbarro pizza at home online shopping, there's that.
