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.
With stores across the country, dressbarn strives to maintain its distinctive position in the marketplace by providing its own private labels and contemporary fashions at great value in an environment that is friendly and trustworthy.
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.
