Ross Stores, the off-price apparel and home fashion retailer, has opened 22 Ross Dress for Less and eight dd’s Discounts stores across 11 states in June and July.
The new locations are part of the company's plan to add about 60 new stores in fiscal 2021. The expansion is expected to add 40 Ross Dress for Less and 20 dd's Discounts locations.
"These recent openings reflect our ongoing commitment to expanding our two chains," said Gregg McGillis, group executive VP, property development. "This summer, we expanded our presence in our largest markets of California, Florida, and Texas, and also added locations in newer states, including Illinois for dd's as well as Ohio and West Virginia for Ross. Looking ahead, we remain confident in our ability to grow to at least 2,400 Ross Dress for Less and 600 dd's Discounts locations over time."
Ross currently operates operates a total of 1,896 locations in 40 states, the District of Columbia, and Guam. The store count includes 1,589 Ross Dress for Less stores and 285 dd’s Discounts stores.
