Here is some disappointing news. Brookstone in the Acadiana Mall is no longer there. It actually has been closed for a couple of months now.

However, a new store will be taking its location. According to Developing Lafayette, a store called Torrid will be opening soon there.

They offer plus-size clothing along with accessories for women sizes 10-30.

Now, I don't know a whole lot about fashion, but after checking out Torrid's Facebook page, they appear to have a younger client in mind compared to something like Lane Bryant.

Torrid currently has eight stores across Louisiana but this will be the first in Lafayette.

No opening date has been announced yet.
