Anne Taylor LOFT in Bowie Town Center is closing its doors for good on Jan. 25.

"This location is closing January 25. But we're still in the neighborhood. Stop by and say hi," reads a sign in the store's front window, referring customers to LOFT locations at the Annapolis Mall and Waugh Chapel.

The Bowie Town Center has bid farewell to several retailers over the past 18 months—most notable Old Navy and Bed Bath & Beyond, which both relocated to Waugh Chapel—but the mall has maintained a fairly high occupancy rate. 

New stores, including Fashion to Figure, Francesca's, LA Fitness, Off Broadway Shoes, Charming Charlie, FroZenYo and Teavana have opened, filling all but one vacant storefront in the shopping center. Victoria's Secret and Bath & Body Works have also renovated their stores in the mall in the past year-and-a-half. 

Representatives from Anne Taylor LOFT did not immediately respond with comment.
