NATICK – Ascena said yesterday, May 20, it plans to shut all 650 of its Dressbarn stores, including the one in Natick.
“Dressbarn chain has not been operating at an acceptable level of profitability in today’s retail environment,” said Dressbarn CFO Steven Taylor said in a press release.
Ascena also owns apparel chains Ann Taylor and Loft.
Customers will be able to continue to shop from Dressbarn stores and online, as the closures won’t take place immediately, said Dressbarn.
No closure dates were announced.
The Natick location is in Sherwood Plaza off Route 9.
