With the new location, LOFT’s current Independence Mall location will close at the end of the year or early 2020, a store manager confirmed Tuesday.

LOFT is the lower-priced, casual companion store to Ann Taylor, and offers women clothing options that work for every day and appeals to everyone, according to a release from Mayfaire. It is owned by Ascena Retail Group, Inc., which also owns Justice, Lane Bryant and Ann Taylor.

“We are very excited to welcome LOFT to our group of Ascena retailers at Mayfaire Town Center,” Kurt Bohlmann, General Manager of Mayfaire, said in the release. “We know shoppers will love their stylish selections. We look forward to seeing everyone at the grand opening on May 18 at 10 a.m.!”

Customers will receive $25 off their full-price purchase of $75 or more on opening day, in-store only. This offer excludes Lou & Grey and is not combinable with any other offers.
