The Face Values & Beyond located at 2431 Broadway, between 89th and 90th streets, will soon be closing. Thanks to @ameliasgewirtz for the tip and photo.
A store associate told us the closing date will be some time in February, and everything is currently 20 to 40% off.
The brand, owned by Bed Bath & Beyond, offers health and beauty products in addition to household goods, and sometimes goes by Harmon Face Values.
In 2020, another Bed Bath & Beyond subsidiary, Harmon Health & Beauty, opened in the retail section of Hotel Belleclaire, located at 2175 Broadway between 76th and 77th streets.
A 2017 article in Forbes clarifies the distinction between the parent company’s brands:
“In March 2002, BBBY bought Harmon stores, a chain of less than 27 freestanding stores in three states that were largely selling beauty and healthcare products. That acquisition gave the parent company a presence in a new market segment. Since then, the division has seen its name change, sometimes called Harmon, Harmon Face Values or Face Values – all seemingly used interchangeably and doing nothing to solidify a brand identity.”
Face Values and Beyond can be reached at (646) 885-2520 and is currently open from 9am-9pm daily.
I’m so sorry to read this. This store has been a great neighborhood resource. Prices are very good and the variety of merchandise is very broad. The items they stock from Bed Bath and Beyond meant you didn’t have to go to the big store near Lincoln Center for household staples. I’d recommend to folks who have gotten used to the prices on health and beauty aids — far lower than CVS or Duane Reade usually — to check out the new Harmon store at the Belleclaire Hotel.
