NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. -- Ascena retail group says it's winding down its Dressbarn business and plans to shut all 650 or so of the women's clothing stores in order to focus on its more profitable brands. 

The retailer said customers will be able to continue to shop from Dressbarn stores and online, as the closures won't take place immediately. It hasn't outlined an exact timeline for the winding-down process of the business.

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.

The New Hartford Consumer Square Dressbarn, is among the locations set to close.
