The Ann Taylor Loft store at Tacoma Mall is closing its doors, a mall public relations official confirmed Friday.
Greta Smoke, a public relations representative for Simon Malls’ West region, said Friday that the store’s last day will be today.
The mall is planning to announce several new stores this spring, Smoke said, and that news should be released next week.
Smoke said the Tacoma Loft store had been at the mall for 10 years. Jill Harnick, a spokeswoman for Ann Taylor corporate, said in an e-mail that the company would not comment on individual closings.
According to a recent corporate report: “The Company updated expectations related to the store closure component of its previously announced strategic restructuring program. Under the program, the company now expects to close approximately 43 stores in fiscal 2010.”
