Ann Taylor Launched Subscription Rental Service [WWD]
Ann Taylor quietly introduced a new rental service last month that allows shoppers to try pieces before/if they choose to buy them. The program, which operates on a separate website called Infinite Style that carries "a distilled version" of Ann Taylor's offering, costs $95 per month, and customers can choose as many pieces to rent at a time as they wish. The retailer takes care of the shipping and dry cleaning both ways. Infinite Style's offerings do not include jewelry and accessories, and the service is not currently available for Ann Taylor sister brands like Loft and Lou & Grey.
