Gary Muto, Chief Executive Officer of ascena commented, “We took immediate actions to preserve liquidity and reduce costs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic while continuing to heighten engagement with our customers.  We have successfully leveraged our digital capabilities to respond to the evolving needs of our customers across our portfolio of well-known and beloved brands. As of May 27th, we have re-opened approximately 450 of our 2,800 stores and will operate in adherence with local regulations as well as health and safety guidelines from the CDC. We look forward to welcoming our customers back to our stores.”

Mr. Muto continued, “The safety of our store associates and customers remain our leading priority as we navigate the challenges presented by COVID-19. We continue to put our associates, customers and community at the center of everything we do and I am extremely thankful to our associates for their commitment and hard work during this extremely difficult period.”
