Liquidation sales at the remaining Dressbarn stores will start Friday, the struggling retailer has announced.

While the 544 stores will close no later than Dec. 26, the women's clothing website is expected to relaunch in 2020 with a new owner, the company said Wednesday in a news release.

“As part of our planned wind down, which has received overwhelming support from our landlord and vendor community, we are starting store closing sales at the balance of our 544 brick and mortar retail stores on Friday," Steven Taylor, Dressbarn chief financial officer, said in the release.

Some stores have already closed since the company announced its plans in May to shutter all locations. Dressbarn is part of New Jersey-based Ascena Retail Group, whose other brands include Ann Taylor, Lane Bryant, Catherines, Cacique and Justice.
