Dressbarn to Shutter All 650+ Stores

The Waterloo Dressbarn on Flammang Drive and nine other Iowa Dressbarn outlets are among the more than 650 stores that will be closed in the coming weeks.

The 57-year old chain announced on its website yesterday(Mon) afternoon that it plans to wind down its retail operations and  eventually close all of its stores, because it’s no longer profitable.

Besides Waterloo, Dressbarn’s Iowa stores are in Cedar Rapids, Coralville, Williamsburg, Dubuque, Davenport, Ankeny, West Des Moines, Sioux City and Council Bluffs.
