Ann Taylor

10 Jul

Ann Taylor’s rich heritage dates to 1954, when founder Robert Liebeskind, the son of a dressmaker, opened his first shop. Back then, “Ann Taylor” represented a best-selling dress style that had been gifted to the storeowner by his father. The “Ann Taylor” design embodied the well-dressed woman, and the Ann Taylor legacy was born. By 1983, Ann Taylor had grown from a regional, primarily East Coast brand, to a national brand with 47 stores across the United States. Today, the Ann Taylor brand is represented by two brands with four channels of distribution: Ann Taylor Stores, LOFT, Ann Taylor Factory and LOFT Outlet. At the end of fiscal 2008, Ann Taylor operated 935 stores throughout the United States, District of Columbia and Puerto Rico and generated nearly $2.2 billion in sales.
