Dublin, Calif. — Ross Stores opened 30 Ross Dress for Less® and 10 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.
"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," says Jim Fassio, president and chief development officer. "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."
Ross Stores, Inc. is headquartered in Dublin, Calif., with 1,483 locations in 38 states, the District of Columbia, and Guam. The company also operates 237 dd's DISCOUNTS® in 18 states. For more information, visit www.rossstores.com.
