Bebe closing all stores, 3 in Palm Beach County

(CNBC, NBC NEWSCHANNEL) Women's clothing retailer bebe will be closing all of its brick-and-mortar stores.

According to a Friday filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, bebe will close all 175 of its stores across the country. It has 23 in Florida, including three in Palm Beach County.

The company expects to shutter the stores by the end of May.

The closures apparently come without a bankruptcy filing.

Bebe, Wet Seal, and The Limited are among the recent clothing chains to close their stores amid a wave of declining foot traffic and intense online competition.
