Ann Taylor, Inc

Ann Taylor is a premier American specialty apparel retailer for the professional woman. Over the Company’s fifty year heritage we have become a well-known resource for quality suits, separates, dresses, shoes and accessories with a feminine, polished approach to updated classic style. The Company meets the needs of modern women’s busy lifestyles by providing a full range of career, casual and occasion offerings in one location. We plan collections with versatile styles that coordinate not only from head-to-toe, but also from season-to-season, so that our client can build a full wardrobe from Ann Taylor. Our dedication to helping her be at her best has led to an exceptional level of enduring client loyalty.

The brand is marketed under three divisions, Ann Taylor, Ann Taylor Loft, and Ann Taylor Factory. The Company’s Ann Taylor stores compete in the “better” priced category, and cater to the successful, relatively affluent career woman, who needs appropriate, fashion conscious attire for her professional life, and prefers stylish, coordinated looks for her leisure activities.

Ann Taylor Loft stores compete in the “upper moderate” priced category. Ann Taylor Loft collections are designed for value conscious women with a more relaxed lifestyle both at work and at home.

Ann Taylor Factory stores have become a shopping destination in their own right. They continue to evolve from their roots as clearance outlets, with an increasing percentage of their clothing merchandise specifically designed and made to carry the Ann Taylor Factory label.

Ann Taylor is one of the country’s leading women’s specialty retailers, operating 740 stores in 45 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, and also online at www.anntaylor.com and www.anntaylorloft.com, as of January 1, 2005.
