ONEONTA, N.Y. - Shoppers in Oneonta will have one less place to shop. Signs that read 'Store Closing' are posted on the front windows of Bed, Bath & Beyond at the Southside Mall in Oneonta.
Store employees tell the Oneonta Daily Star that a closing date has not been set yet, but they expect to stay open through the holidays.
Inside the store Tuesday evening, much of the store's inventory was discounted at 20% off.
Bed, Bath & Beyond opened in 2007. The Southside Mall is technically located in the Town of Oneonta, but the City of Oneonta's mayor said its closure impacts the entire region.
“Bed, Bath & Beyond was a popular store,” Mayor Gary Herzig said. “A lot of people in this area enjoyed shopping there and we’re sad to see it go.”
Herzig said the mall has been doing very well over the past couple of years and he expects it won’t take long for a new store to replace it.
