Dress Barn Announces Nationwide ClosuresSubmitted: 05/21/2019
AP - Dress Barn announced that it will eventually close all 650 of its locations across the country due to poor sale figures.

The stores will run normally and customers can continue to shop either in-store or on-line during the transition.

So far, there are no changes to dress barn's return, refund or gift card policies.

It is unclear exactly when the stores will shut down.

This year alone, more than 7-thousand retail closings have been announced.
