Bed Bath & Beyond will close one of its South Jersey stores when the lease ends. Bed Bath and Beyond has announced it plans to close its Vineland location in the Cumberland Mall after 16 years.

According to the Press of Atlantic City, a spokesperson for the store, said the company’s lease with the mall is ending in early 2019 and will not be renewed. In an e-mail to the Press writing...

“We want to thank the Vineland community for their patronage and appreciate our loyal customers that have been shopping with us.”

In July, Bed Bath and Beyond made it known they planned to close about 40 stores nationally if they were unable to negotiate better lease terms with landlords.

Lisa Milideo, marketing director for the Cumberland Mall, told the Press the closing of the store is simply a business decision and doesn't reflect on the the success of the mall.

“For the mall, it’s an opportunity to find a new retailer and/or service or an entity that will serve the community in a successful manner,” she said.

Bed Bath & Beyond has 16 other New Jersey stores and two other Atlantic and Cape May county locations, in Mays Landing and Rio Grande.
