Both Ann Taylor and Loft are shuttering some of their stores as part of their parent company's bankruptcy due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to USA Today. It wasn't too long ago that the Ascena Retail Group purchased Ann Taylor and Loft retail stores for $2.16 billion, as per Getty. That happened in 2015, when Ascena reportedly decided to expand its women's apparel business. The New Jersey-based company filed for bankruptcy late last week.

Ascena also owns Justice, Lane Bryant, Lou & Grey, Cacique, Catherines, and the now defunct Dressbarn, according to USA Today.

In New England, several Ann Taylor and Loft stores and outlets are closing. Here are some of them:
