The Florida store will be located in Westfield Citrus Park in Citrus Park. They will be opening on May 19. The West Virginia store is located at University Town Centre in Morgantown. They will be having a grand opening event on May 20 to 22.
Those who will be present in the stores’ opening will have the privilege to view the store’s latest collection and enjoy great deals and giveaways. Up for grabs are 25 Lane Bryant gift cards valued at $25 each, for each day of the opening weekend.
Ascena has been actively campaigning to expand their presence across the United States. Aside from Lane Bryant, their dressbarn stores have also seen renovations, relocations and new openings. The group is looking to add further to their roster of over 830 dressbarn stores across the country.
Last March, dressbarn relocated its store to Garner, North Carolina. They also hosted a Kentucky Derby Pop-Up Shop at the Louisville Marriott Downtown in Louisville Kentucky last May. The shop featured curated pieces from their DRESSBAR collection that were derby-ready. It ran from May 5 to 7 and offered free tote bags to shoppers.
