Get your 20% coupons ready, the Hyannis Bed, Bath & Beyond will be moving to a bigger location.

Construction has been underway for some time in Southwind Plaza, home of Kohl's, Whole Foods and Home Depot off Route 132.

According to Leah Drill of Bed, Bath & Beyond's public relations office, the store is slated to open in Spring 2016.

For the past several years, the spot has been the home of the seasonal Halloween store Spirit and before that, was the original Hyannis location for Old Navy before it moved to the Cape Town Plaza in 2013.

The new location is approximately 37,000 square feet, Drill said in an email. The current Bed, Bath and Beyond location at 621 Route 132 is a bit over 20,000 square feet, according to the Barnstable Assessors Office--close to half the size of the new store. That location is owned by Sailfish Partners LP, c/o Bed, Bath & Beyond.

Southwind Plaza is managed by the Wilder Companies. According to the Andy LaGrega, head of leasing for Wilder, Ethan Allen has a signed lease and is expected to move into a free standing store next to Whole Foods. The parking lot of the funiture store will open directly onto Route 132. There is currently a larger Ethan Allen down the road at 1520 Route 132. LaGrega said the Ethan Allen location in Southwind Plaza is also slated for a spring 2016 opening.

The remaining smaller storefronts between Home Depot and AC Moore will be taken over by Home Depot, LeGrega said. Each of those storefronts is roughly 1,600 square feet in size and will add roughly 5,000 square feet to the Home Depot's current location.
