Bed Bath & Beyond has hit the skids. It’s their fault, they got woke, and Democrat tyrannical COVID restrictions helped destroy them as well. But it’s no reason to end your life. That’s what many think happened when the CFO of Bed Bath & Beyond plunged to his death from a New York City highrise. Reuters reported that Bed Bath & Beyond Inc’s (BBBY.O) chief financial officer fell to his death from New York’s Tribeca skyscraper known as the “Jenga” tower on Friday afternoon, police said, just days after the company said it was closing several stores.
Gustavo Arnal, 52, joined Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY.O) in 2020. He previously worked as CFO for cosmetics brand Avon in London and had a 20-year stint with Procter & Gamble (PG.N), according to his LinkedIn profile.
On Friday at 12:30 p.m. ET (1630 GMT), police responded to a 911 call and found a 52-year-old man dead near the building who appeared to suffer injuries from a fall. Police identified the man as Gustavo Arnal.
The police statement did not provide further details on the circumstances leading to Arnal’s death but added that the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office will now determine the cause of the fatality.
Bed Bath and Beyond did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
On Aug. 16, Arnal, sold 55,013 shares in the company, Reuters’ calculations showed based on SEC filings.
The big-box chain – once considered a so-called “category killer” in home and bath goods – has seen its fortunes falter after an attempt to sell more of its own brand, or private-label goods.
Last week, Bed Bath & Beyond said it would close 150 stores, cut jobs and overhaul its merchandising strategy in an attempt to turn around its money-losing business.
Very sad. Nothing is worth losing your life over. I hope his family finds answers and peace.
