DRESS BARN REPORTS MONTHLY AND QUARTERLY SALES RESULTS

 STAMFORD, Conn., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dress Barn, Inc. (NASDAQ: DBRN) today reported sales of $39.6 million for the four week period ended April 24, 1993, an increase of 7 percent from sales of $36.9 million last year. The company's comparable store sales decreased 3 percent during this period.
 For the 13 week quarter ended April 24, 1993, sales were $95.2 million, representing an increase of 5 percent over sales of $91.0 million for the same period in 1992. For the same quarterly period, the company's comparable store sales decreased 6 percent.
 At April 24, 1993, the company operated 626 stores, a net addition of 66 or a 12 percent increase from the 560 in operation last year.
 A spokesperson for the company commented that the softness in sales during the quarter was primarily attributed to unfavorable weather conditions in most regions of the country. The northeast was particularly hard hit 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 store prices.
