Bed Bath & Beyond Lays Off Nearly 900 Store Managers
August 8, 2017,
UNION, N.J.—Bed Bath & Beyond announced that it is eliminating approximately 880 department and assistant store manager positions in a store management realignment.
The realignment accelerates a transition in store management roles that began more than a year ago through store hiring practices and attrition, Bed Bath & Beyond said, and enables it to focus on its staffing needs in non-management roles and place less emphasis on a management structure that supported a more rapid rate of store growth.
