In the spring, Ann Taylor will open two local concept stores. At Oakbrook Center in Oakbrook and Main Place in Naperville, the stores will open on April 7 and April 21, respectively. Inspired by a modern home, the women's shops will be spruced up with tufted furniture and crystal chandeliers, while plushy fitting rooms will have a new lighting system with flattering, backlit mirrors.
