Ann Taylor is more ready than ever to move just a few storefronts south on Michigan Ave. The move is into a smaller storefront in the middle of the 600 Block (not on the corner anymore). So it's a downgrade in space but an upgrade in concept. That's right - the store is a brand new concept store and it's set to open on Friday, March 16.
With a heritage dating back to 1954, Ann Taylor has always been synonymous with iconic, easy all American style for modern working women, which does well in Chicago. Starting in 2009, Ann Taylor progressed through its most significant evolution since the brand's inception; revamped collections under the brand's new Head of Design, Lisa Axelson. The next phase of the rejuvenation is the brand's new store concept.
