Ross Stores Drives Store Growth Plans

Ross Stores recently opened 30 Ross Dress for Less and ten DD’s Discounts stores across 19 different states in September and October.

These new locations complete the company’s store growth plans for fiscal 2018 with the addition of 99 new stores, the company said.

“This fall, we continued to expand our Ross and DD’s footprints across our existing markets as well as expansion in our newer market – the Midwest,” said Jim Fassio, president and chief development officer, Ross Stores. “We now operate nearly 1,500 Ross and over 230 DD’s Discounts locations. Looking ahead, we continue to believe there is plenty of opportunity to further expand our store base for both chains given consumers’ ongoing focus on value. As such, we recently updated our longer-term growth store potential to reflect our confidence that Ross can grow to 2,400 locations and DD’s can become a chain of 600 stores.”
