Some of the locations have already been closed and others on the list "no longer meet the standards our customers expect from us," the company said.

"We're continually evolving to serve our loyal Bed Bath & Beyond customers better — whether they come to us at one of our 900+ stores or are one of the millions who shop with us online each year," a spokesperson told PEOPLE. "We've just given over 150 of our most popular stores a multi-million dollar update and are continually investing in our stores and digital platform to give customers an even better experience however they choose to shop with us."

Bed, Bath & Beyond is also famous for its 20% off coupons. During the earnings call, new CEO Mark Tritton said they exploring new ways to keep the coupon alive.

"We know that the coupon is part of our heritage and our DNA, and we want to maintain that in our mix as part of our tools that we can reach out to customers with," he explained. "But we do see that there's an opportunity to readjust our value proposition directly with the customer."
