Home goods retailer Bed Bath & Beyond plans to close 87 stores nationwide, include two in Jacksonville, according to a list it published Jan. 30.

The Jacksonville stores are at 13221 City Station Drive in River City Marketplace in North Jacksonville and 6001-24 Argyle Forest Blvd. in West Jacksonville.

The company is expected to file soon for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization, according to news outlets, including The Wall Street Journal.

Bed Bath & Beyond previously announced the closing of 62 stores in September and an additional 56 in January. 

After the closings, two Bed Bath & Beyond stores would remain in the Jacksonville area at 4054 S. Third St. in Jacksonville Beach and at 8801 Southside Blvd., Suite 1, in South Jacksonville.

As of Nov. 26, 2022, the company had 949 stores, including 762 Bed Bath & Beyond stores, throughout all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Canada; 137 buybuy BABY stores; and 50 stores under the names Harmon, Harmon Face Values and Face Values.
