The department store chain appointed appointing Will Wright and Steve Absolom of KPMG as joint administrators in January after failing to find a buyer or new investment for the business.
Although KPMG is still searching for a buyer, all 23 Beales stores have now been closed.
Staff continued to work until 21 March to help box up residual stock and assist in store closures.
The majority of employees have since been made redundant, with all salaries paid up to and including the date of their redundancy.
