Morrow v. Ascena Retail Group

Case # 16-cv-03340

Jurisdiction US District Court for S.D. NY
Summary

Defendants operate both regular retail stores and "outlet" stores under the brands "Ann Taylor" and "LOFT."  The outlet stores offer products ostensibly at significant discounts off the retail price at regular retail stores.  However, Plaintiffs allege that the supposed savings are artificial - the products at the outlet stores were never sold at the retail locations.  Consumers were lead to believe they were receiving a significant discount off of an illusory "original retail price" and purchased products believing they were receiving a bargain.
