The popular department chain confirmed plans to close 87 Bed Bath & Beyond stores, five Buybuy Baby stores and its entire chain of Harmon drugstores, CBS reports.

The company says the closures are to increase efficiency as store officials consider many paths to keep other stores in business.

Last August, Bed Bath & Beyond announced plans to close 150 stores. The 87 are additional closures.

“This store fleet reduction expands the Company’s ongoing closure program of approximately 150 lower-producing Bed Bath & Beyond banner stores,” a spokesperson told Nexstar, according to The Hill. “We will update all stakeholders on our plans as they develop and finalize.”
