DRESS BARN REPORTS FEBRUARY SALES RESULTS

 STAMFORD, Conn., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dress Barn, Inc. (NASDAQ: DBRN) today reported sales of $22.6 million for the four week period ended Feb. 20, 1993, an increase of 7 percent over sales of $21.1 million for the same period in 1992. The company's comparable store sales decreased 4 percent during this same period.
 At Feb. 20, 1993, the company operated 594 stores, a net addition of 57 or an 11 percent increase from the 537 in operation last year. The company continues its store expansion program by opening 48 stores since the end of its July 1992 fiscal year.
 A spokesperson for the company commented that the softness in sales during the month was primarily attributed to unfavorable weather conditions in most regions of the country, particularly in the Northeast where Dress Barn has its major concentration of stores. In the regions where the weather was more seasonal, sales results were favorable.
 The Dress Barn, Inc., operates a chain of women's off-price apparel stores, offering in-season, moderate to better quality fashion apparel, primarily with nationally recognized brand names, at substantial discounts from department stores prices.
