Focusing on the fashion needs and desires of the 21st century woman, Dress Barn Inc. is a national specialty apparel retailer offering quality career and casual fashion apparel. They offer their distinct lines through their “dressbarn” and “maurices” brands. With a current market capitalization of $988.61M, Dress Barn Inc. trades on NASDAQ. Their corporate headquarters are in Suffern, New York.

The company began back in 1962 when Roslyn Jaffe opened the first dressbarn store in Stamford, Connecticut. In 1963, a second store opened. Roslyn’s husband Elliot joined the business shortly after Roslyn began the company. The company now operates, as of April 26, 2008, 835 dressbarn stores in 46 states. In addition, they have 646 maurices stores in 43 states. The company became publicly traded in 1983.

Established in 1931, maurices is wholly owned by Dress Barn Inc. The maurices store concept is one of a small town specialty store. Their target market is the fashion-conscious customer of any age who has a twenty-something attitude. Dress Barn Inc. is planning an estimated 50 store openings for the maurices brand annually. The maurice stores offer their customers sizes from one to 24.

Dress Barn Inc.’s product offerings include casual clothing, career wear, leather, and outerwear. They also include dresses, suits, woven tops, jewelry, and accessories. The company provides their own private labels and contemporary fashions while offering price value to their customers.

Dress Barn Inc. executives presented last month at the Oppenheimer 8th Annual Consumer Growth Conference at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. The company continues to grow and offer their customers the latest fashions so they can step out for work or play dressed in style. The company hopes to further shareholder growth by continuing their commitment to quality, style, value, and customer service in all their stores.
