Liz Claiborne Inc.'s Juicy Couture clothing division said Tuesday that its store on Fifth Avenue in New York is closed due to a bedbug problem.

"Like other major retailers recently impacted by this issue, we are moving swiftly and aggressively to address the problem," the company said in a statement.

The store is expected to reopen this week.

Three other Juicy Couture stores in Manhattan are open and unaffected.

In July, an Abercrombie & Fitch store and its sibling Hollister store were closed briefly to clean for bedbugs, which have also been found in other New York stores and in apartments, movie theaters and even on the subway.
