Ross Dress for Less
The fast-growing off-price chain enjoyed robust net income growth. Ross, primarily in the West and Southern states, continues its expansion in the Midwest and opened a new 1.6 million square-foot distribution center to support its growth in the Southeast. While Ross has many fans, when the company boasts about a no-frills store experience it means it. “It’s a mess,” is a typical shopper reaction, but so is praise for the housewares and apparel finds. Merchandise deliveries five days a week keep the treasure hunt atmosphere lively.
