    In this March 13, 2015 file photo, shoppers walk past an advertisement for retailer "bebe" along Lincoln Road Mall, a pedestrian street featuring retail stores and outdoor cafes, in Miami Beach, Florida.

    Bebe expects to close all of its brick-and-mortar locations by the end of May, the clothing retailer said in a filing Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

    The retailer has four locations in San Diego County including Horton Plaza, Fashion Valley, University Towne Center and Shops at Las Americas Outlet.

    The chain had previously said it was committed to closing 21 locations, which represented roughly 12 percent of its total outlets, CNBC reported.

    The move comes amid speculation that the company plans to transition to an online-only model.

    Bebe didn't immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.
