We broke the news on Jan. 4 that Wellesley Square’s Ann Taylor store would be closing this month, a fact confirmed by store employees and signage in the store. The Globe and others followed up and confirmed the facts as well.
However, before we confirmed the news we sent an email on Jan. 3 to Ann Taylor corporate to get the word from the horse’s mouth. Eight days after we sent our inquiry, we got a response addressed to “Ms. Brown” that reads in part:
“Thank you for your email. Your loyalty [to] our Ann Taylor is truly appreciated.
At this time we do not have a complete listing for all closing and/or opening stores for 2011. However upon researching please be assured there are currently no plans to close our Wellesley Square Ann Taylor location.”
Glad we got that cleared up….
Got the word on businesses leaving or better yet coming to Wellesley? Let us know here.

I was in there today and the store manager and staff confirmed that today, Saturday the 22nd, is their last day in business at the Wellesley location. Merchandise is being moved to other stores. Bummed to see AT go!
