“This is a time of unprecedented disruption to our industry,” Tritton said in a statement. “We do not make these decisions lightly but, while the vast majority of our stores remain closed, we must now balance our ability to provide jobs and financial support for our associates in the short, medium and long-term, as well as prioritizing investments that will strengthen our business. We are therefore making the difficult decision today to place many of our associate team members on temporary leave, while our stores remain temporarily closed.”

With the furlough announcement, Bed Bath & Beyond also said that it will keep its retail stores closed until at least May 2. The company had previously announced its stores would be closed until April 3.
