Less than a year after relocating from Ambassador Caffery Parkway near the Mall of Acadiana to Parc Lafayette at Kaliste Saloom Road and Camellia Boulevard, Imelda’s Fine Shoes is calling it quits. The Parc Lafayette store will sell its last pair of pumps Aug. 31.

The store’s sale has been on since Aug. 1, says Manager Mari Roberts, with all merchandise now 50 percent off.

Imelda's owner Sally Banta also has stores in Baton Rouge and Metairie — and a franchised location in Shreveport. Those stores are unaffected by the Lafayette closure, Roberts says.

The Baton Rouge-based chain expanded to Lafayette about 14 years ago; Banta’s recent move from Baton Rouge to Texas prompted the decision to close the Lafayette store, according to Roberts.
