Bed Bath & Beyond customers are complaining in droves about disappointing retail prices as the brand continues to close its stores.
Dozens of TikTok users from across the US have used the video-sharing platform and found that discounts are still around 10 percent for the most part.
Many argued that the deals aren’t worth it right now, urging buyers “not to waste their time.”
And other social media users seem to be taking notice, as commenters vowed to wait for more price drops.
Bed Bath & Beyond customers have flocked to complain about the “pathetic” retail prices as the brand closes its stores (Idaho branch).
Last month, Bed Bath & Beyond became one of the latest in-store victims of what experts are calling the “retail apocalypse” after the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
The 360 remaining stores and 120 Buybuy Baby stores in the US will remain open for now while the company liquidates and attempts to auction off assets, but its future looks bleak.
Ultimately, all 30,000 employees are at risk of losing their jobs.
But despite the closure of the sale, shoppers were bitterly disappointed by the sell-offs.
Comedian Eric D’Alessandro also expressed his dissatisfaction in a video that has been viewed more than two million times.
In the clip, the disgruntled New York customer speaks to the camera and explains, “Bed Bath & Beyond isn’t really going broke.”
“Look at this, you get 10 percent off a store sale? No wonder everything is still in stock. People just shop like it’s a normal day.
“Businesses going out of business should look like an apocalypse.” There should be a smoke screen, you should search who you got there with, tribes should have formed. Go out with a bang.’
And other social media users have also vowed to avoid the outlet until they see more price drops
He continued, “I don’t want $30 off an espresso machine — I want the shelves.” Sell me the doors. The staff should help you lift the table from the break room to your car.
“We should help the manager break into the safe.” “Everything has to go, you’re leaving good meat on the bone.”
Eric said of the closure of his local Sears, “People took the sign, someone started the sprinkler system – it was a real liquidation sale.”
And other social media users agreed that the current offerings weren’t enough.
One wrote: “Oh my god thank you!!! It’s crazy they hardly discount it! As if it couldn’t be better than their 20 percent coupon.’
Another added, “Their ‘going out of business’ sale is proof of why they’re going out of business.”
And a third commented, ‘EXACTLY!!!!!’ I just walked up and walked right out.’

The shopper first spotted vacuum cleaners at 10 percent before focusing on the shelves full of candles.
She said, “20 percent off a $30 candle isn’t enough, especially since I can find those at Home Goods and TJ Maxx and Marshalls and Ross.”
Speaking again about a selection of mirrors, she asked, ’20 percent off $75?’ You can definitely find that at Target or Walmart.’
Val finally concluded, “Honestly, just save yourself the trip and go to Homegoods.”

“Everything is 10 percent off, which you call ‘okay’, but then everything is so absurdly expensive that it’s still a lot more expensive than any other store — even with the 10 percent discount.”
Focusing specifically on various products, he says, “These are just crappy jars that everyone has — you can get them at Marshalls for about $2 … Jeez, Bed Bath & Beyond.”
His dramatic conclusion was: “Get well soon, I hope the CEO ends up living in a ditch.”
It came after a TikToker went viral after documenting all the discounts and deals at the brand’s flagship New York outlet.
