CLEVELAND- Dressbarn plans to close all of its 650 stores, the retailer announced on Monday.

All Dressbarn stores are open for business, as is the chain's online site.

It said its vendors and suppliers will continue to be paid on "normal terms", and that employees will be updated as decisions are made about when specific locations will close.

Dressbarn is going out of business and will close hundreds of stores in the United States, threatening almost 7,000 jobs, its parent company said.
