Dressbarn liquidation sales start Friday

Dressbarn announced earlier this year that it’s closing all stores. Liquidation sales start today.

The company’s 544 stores will close no later than Dec. 26.

Dressbarn has stores at Rockwell Plaza and the Outlet Shoppes at Oklahoma City, in Norman at University Town Center and at Eastside Marketplace in Tulsa.

Dressbarn isn’t the only store to shutter its doors this year. Payless ShoeSource closed 2,100 stores earlier. Gymboree ceased operation of its remaining stores. Other retailers are taking a close look at the business. Gap Inc. has said it will close some 230 stores over the next two years.  Forever 21 announced this week it is closing 111 stores across the U.S., but none in Oklahoma are on the hit list.

More than 7,000 store closings have been announced this year, including ones at Bed Bath & Beyond, CVS, Charlotte Russe, Things Remembered, Family Dollar, GNC, Pier 1, Forever 21, Destination Maternity, Lowe’s, Saks Off Fifth, Children’s Place, Sears, Chico’s, Victoria’s Secret and Foot Locker.
