Dublin, Calif. — Ross Stores recently opened 23 Ross Dress for Less® and five dd’s DISCOUNTS® stores across 15 different states in February and March. These new locations are part of the company’s plans to add approximately 70 Ross and 20 dd’s DISCOUNTS locations during 2017.
"These new spring stores further strengthen our presence in the Midwest, which accounts for approximately one-quarter of these openings, and includes initial entry into our newest state of Iowa,” says Jim Fassio, president and chief development officer. “We also continue to see opportunity to grow in our largest states with new locations in California, Florida and Texas.”
With these recent openings, Ross Stores, Inc. now operates 1,561 Ross Dress for Less and dd's DISCOUNTS stores across 37 states, the District of Columbia and Guam. Looking ahead, Ross hopes to grow to 2,000 locations with dd's DISCOUNTS becoming a chain of 500 stores. (Currently, there are 198 dd’s DISCOUNTS® stores in 15 states.)
