Ross Stores, with the recent opening of 19 Ross Dress for Less and seven DD’s Discount locations across nine different states in February and March, is on its way to fulfilling a goal to debut 100 total locations this year.
The company’s plan is to open 75 Ross and 25 DD’s Discounts locations during fiscal 2020.
Ross currently operates 1,565 namesake stores in 39 states, the District of Columbia and Guam. It also operates 266 DD’s in 20 states.
“These recent openings reflect our ongoing plans to continue building our presence in both existing and newer markets, including the Midwest for Ross, and expansion of DD’s Discounts into Indiana,” said Gregg McGillis, group evp/property development, Ross Stores. “As we look out over the long-term, we remain confident that Ross can grow to 2,400 locations and DD’s Discounts can become a chain of 600 stores given consumers’ ongoing focus on value.”
