Ascena Retail Group bankruptcy is also affecting Justice tween brand, Ann Taylor Loft, Catherines, Lou & Grey, and Cacique.

Lane Bryant is the latest retailer to take the plunge, announcing that it will be permanently shuttering 157 stores, including 52 outlets. The closings are part of the Chapter 11 Bankruptcy filing of parent company Ascena Retailer Group, which is planning to shut down a significant number of the 2,800 stores it owns under the chain names of Lane Bryant, Justice, Ann Taylor Loft, Catherines, Lou & Grey, and Cacique. Catherines will shutting all of its stores but will continue as an online retailer. Dress Barn, another of Ascena's holdings, went out of business last year but has reemerged with an online presence, as well. 

The parent company has been grappling with the lack of foot traffic that has been occurring for quite a while. The coronavirus pandemic just put it over the edge, like many of the other retailers out there. This latest round of closings are just another stop along the path to restructuring. 

“Ann Taylor, LOFT, Lane Bryant, Justice and Lou & Grey have incredibly loyal customers who are at the center of everything we do. These iconic brands have significant long-term potential and we continue to deliver on their mission to provide all women and girls with fashion and inspiration to live confidently every day. This comprehensive restructuring, as well as the actions we are taking to optimize our brand portfolio and store fleet, mark a new start for our company and will allow us to expand our customer-focused strategies across her mobile, online, and store experiences,” Gary Muto, Chief Executive Officer of Ascena commented.

The Lane Bryant stores that are closing will go through liquidation sales, which are predicted to last 30 to 60 days.
