Bed Bath & Beyond to Close Dozens More Stores, Including Pasadena Location of Harmon, Its Beauty Store Brand

Retailer Bed Bath & Beyond plans to close the Pasadena location of its beauty store brand, Harmon, at 3609 E. Foothill Blvd. in Hastings Ranch.

The closure is part of a plan to close an additional 87 Harmon and Bed Bath & Beyond stores across the United States — including several in Southern California — as the company faces likely bankruptcy proceedings.

“As we work with our advisers to consider multiple paths, we are implementing actions to manage our business as efficiently as possible,” the company said in a statement provided to City News Service on Wednesday. “We continue our analysis of our store footprint based on a variety of factors, and together with our advisers, have identified additional Bed Bath & Beyond store closures that we will implement in a timely manner.

“… We will update all stakeholders on our plans as they develop and finalize.”

The latest round of closings — announced by the company Monday — comes on the heels of August’s announcement of 150 store closings.

The following Southland locations are slated for closure:

• Culver City, 10822 Jefferson Blvd.;
• Glendora, 1405 E. Gladstone St.;
• Hawthorne, 14351 Hindry Ave.;
• Los Angeles, 10561 W. Pico Blvd.; and

Bed Bath & Beyond reported last week that it received a notice of default from lender JPMorgan Chase.

“At this time, the company does not have sufficient resources to repay the amounts under the credit facilities and this will lead the company to consider all strategic alternatives, including restructuring its debt under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code,” the company said, CNN reported.

The latest 87 closings include five buybuy Baby locations and the last 49 Harmon Face Value stores, which sold cosmetics.
