Kiss Kiss, Good-bye

Kiss Kiss, Good-bye

Looks like retail lovers will be crying for this spring season. They will be kissing one retail store good-bye for this season. As the company’s store become a memory to retailer lovers, the company will still be standing. One of most high class retailing stores are closing by May 31th. Who gets the big exit for 2017? No other than Bebe.

No More Stores…
Bebe is putting an end to their stores. Closing by the end of May, Bebe stores will be leaving a big hole to fill in each mall worldwide. The company decided to close all of their 170 stores in all twenty-one locations including its outlet stores. No more looking classy or sophisticated for the retailing world. No more looking like a diamond for retail lovers. Ever since 1976, Bebe was been that type of fashion that everyone would ever dreamed of. Now, the dream has became a total nightmare for everyone to realize that the store they once loved will be no more. Bebe employees are going to be out of a job while retailing will never be the same. How can retailing bounce back from this when the end of May comes? This is just a horrible twisted sick joke for fashion lovers.

Not So Cute…
For Bebe, retailing has not been doing so well with them in the past years. In fact, things have gotten bad for the company. From the past four years, Bebe has lost $200 million. Over eighty percent of the company’s stock has fell through in the past two years. It seems as though things for the company has not been that hot over the past two to four years. Now, the company is pulling the plug on all its stores. It seems as though one heart break is coming at one end to the other for retailer lovers everywhere. It seems as though each mall worldwide will have to learn on how to survive without Bebe. Retailing will be different without retailing’s posh store around the world to kick around.

Still Standing…
It is not over for Bebe until the fat lady sings. Despite of the money and store lost, there is hope for Bebe. While the company is calling it quits for their stores around the world, they are not calling it Chapter 11 just yet. How? One word…website. Bebe lovers can still shop on Bebe’s website. After all the bad news, it seems as though Bebe is now catching a break. It looks like the company is trying to remain standing in the retailing and fashion world. Retail lovers will still be able to get their hands on one of the world’s favorite merchandise. The dream can still live on for everyone to own some Bebe. Everyone might have to kiss the stores good-bye. But, they can still love on the Bebe’s website.

Despite that retailing is getting more bad news, Bebe is still standing. Their lovers will still have an opportunity to buy their latest merchandise. The company’s stores may be getting the closing curtain but, the company is still staying into the fashion world!
