Yet another major retailer on Northern Boulevard has fallen victim to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Bed Bath & Beyond store located in the Munsey Park area of Manhasset will close by the end of February, a spokesperson for the retailer said last week.

Bed Bath & Beyond spokesman Dominic Pendry said in a statement that the closure would be one portion of “a store optimization plan that will see us establish the right network of stores to serve our customers.”

The 2103 Northern Boulevard store shares a building with a Whole Foods Market located in the Munsey Park Plaza shopping center, directly across from the Americana Manhasset luxury shopping center. Jericho-based landlord Kimco Realty Corp. says on its website that the two-level store occupies 41,393 square feet.

Parent company Bed Bath & Beyond Inc., based in Union, New Jersey, said in July that it planned to close about 200 stores over two years.

The chain’s stores in South Huntington and Inwood closed in November 2018. With the Manhasset store’s closure, there will be 11 Bed Bath & Beyond stores on Long Island, including locations in East Northport, Farmingdale, Plainview and Oceanside.

This marks the second major Northern Boulevard retailer to have closed over the course of the pandemic, with Lord & Taylor, just west of Bed Bath and Beyond, announcing the closure of its own Manhasset store in August.
