Dressbarn announced it's closing all of its retail stores, including the Evansville location.


Clothing from Dressbarn was a staple in my Mom's closet for most of her life. It's sad that they'll be shutting their doors after so many decades in business. We all know that sales and more sales will be in our future as the closing date, which is unknown at this time, draws nearer.

Dress Barn released a statement on businesswire.com late yesterday.

Steven Taylor, Chief Financial Officer of Dressbarn, said, “For more than 50 years, Dressbarn has served women’s fashion needs, and we thank all of our dedicated associates for their commitment to Dressbarn and our valued customers. This decision was difficult, but necessary, as the Dressbarn chain has not been operating at an acceptable level of profitability in today’s retail environment. During the wind down process, we will continue to provide our customers with the same great experience both in-store and online, offering them even better deals and value. We will work to assist our associates through the transition and maintain existing relationships with our vendors, suppliers, and other key stakeholders through this process.”

"All Dressbarn stores are open and conducting business as usual, as is Dressbarn’s ecommerce site. Customers can continue to shop at Dressbarn in-store and online and use Dressbarn-branded credit cards for purchases. There are no current changes to Dressbarn’s return, refund, or gift card policies."
