Ross Stores has some big plans when it comes to opening new stores. Ross is opening 19 Ross Dress for Less and eight dd’s Discounts stores across 15 different states in July.
These new locations are part of the off-price retailer’s 2015 expansion plans to add a total of approximately 90 stores during the year, including 70 Ross and 20 dd’s Discounts. Ultimately, the retailer believes Ross Dress for Less can grow to 2,000 locations and dd’s Discounts can become a chain of 500 stores
“These recent openings reflect our ongoing strategy of targeting growth in both established regions and newer markets that we began to enter in 2011,” said Jim Fassio, president and chief development officer. “The 27 locations we added this month include eight new stores in our newer Midwest markets of Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, and Kansas. Looking ahead, we continue to see significant expansion opportunities throughout the country.”
