Bebe Closing in Sunvalley Shopping Center in Concord

Sunvalley Shopping Center, Concord

Last week we learned that the clothing store Kit and Ace would be closing their physical stores in the US to focus online and now another clothing store, Bebe, is doing the same. As you can see in the above photo, Bebe is closing their Sunvalley shopping center location in Concord. According to this LA Times article, Bebe is closing their stores to focus on online sales as well.

It’s hard to be a brick and mortar store in the online world we live in these days. How can you compete when there is greater selection and cheaper prices online? On the other hand, it’s great to be able to try on clothing before buying. I know some people buy different sizes, colors and styles to find the right one and return the rest but I never felt comfortable doing that. What do you think?
