The Dress Barn in the Honey Creek Mall will close Jan. 26.

That's according to a sign in the store's window, which directors shoppers to the chain's online store, www.dressbarn.com.

The Tribune-Star has left telephone and email messages with the store's owner, Ascena Retail, but has yet to hear back.

The year's been a difficult one for the mall. Macy's closed its doors in late March, and Carson's did the same in late August. Sears in October announced closing of its Terre Haute store as that chain reorganizes under bankruptcy. 

In November, however, Vendors' Village opened in the former Carson's space.
