Dressbarn in Augusta Closing
Just a few months after The Children's Place left The Marketplace, Dressbarn will be following.
The Augusta location isn't the only one closing their doors, all 650 locations will be closing up shop for good.
Dressbarn is owned by Ascena Retail Group Inc, which also owns Ann Taylor and Lane Bryant. As reported by WMTW, they are hoping to shift focus towards their more profitable brands as Dress Barn hasn't had an "acceptable level of profitability."
