On behalf of the entire Dressbarn team, we would like to express our deepest gratitude for your loyalty and your business.

Below is for historical reference:
Dress Barn, Inc (NASDAQ-DBRN), is a leading national specialty apparel retailer offering quality career and casual fashion apparel through its dressbarn and maurices brands (announced in June 2009, adding Tween Brands which includes Limited Too and Justice stores).
In 1962 Roslyn Jaffe opened the first Dress Barn retail store.
At a time when women were
wholly underrepresented in the workplace, Roslyn
dared not only to work, but also to launch a new era
in women's fashion. Designer label wool pencil
skirts, sheer blouses, flares, furs, and leather
coats were all the rage. And Roslyn offered her
customers the very latest in women's designer
styles. A year later the second dressbarn
store was opened. Soon after the inception of the
business, her husband Elliot joined Roslyn. Together
they built the business as well as a reputation for
quality, style, value, and customer service. In 1983
dressbarn's stock was introduced on the
NASDAQ Exchange. Today,
dressbarn remains customer centric,
extremely sensitive to and focused on the needs and
desires of women in the 21st century. While society
and its priorities continually change, dressbarn
is poised to respond to these evolutionary trends.
As of April 25, 2009, the Company operated 842 dressbarn stores in 47 states and 707 maurices stores in 44 states.
June 2009, it was announced that Dress Barn and Tween Brands would merge.
Ascena Retail Group, Inc. was created as a public company effective January 1, 2011. The Company is a leading national specialty retailer of apparel for women and tween girls, operating, through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, the dressbarn, maurices and Justice brands. The Company operates through its subsidiaries approximately 2,500 stores throughout the United States and Canada, with revenues of approximately $2.9 billion.
