At least 15 Ascena Retail Group stores to close across Missouri

At least 15 stores will be closing across Missouri as part of a bankruptcy claim by Ascena Retail Group. Ascena is the parent company for retail brands such as Justice, Loft, Ann Taylor, Lane Bryant, Catherines and Lou & Grey.

All locations of Catherines will close, along with a “significant” number of Justices, according to a press release from the company.

Select locations of other brands for the retail group will also close. The closures come due to struggles from the COVID-19 pandemic, the company said.

Nationally, over 1,600 of storefronts will eventually close, representing about half of the group’s locations.
