Ross Stores has already started 2022 out strong by opening 30 different stores across 15 states throughout February and March. These locations are part of the retailer’s larger expansion plan to add 100 total stores to their physical footprint this year. The plan includes 75 Ross and 25 dd’s DISCOUNTS brick-and-mortar locations.
“We recently raised our store potential targets for both Ross and dd’s DISCOUNTS. Our return to stronger unit growth in 2022 reflects our belief that Ross can ultimately grow to 2,900 locations and dd’s DISCOUNTS can become a chain of 700 stores given consumers’ ongoing focus on value and convenience,” said Gregg McGillis, Group Executive Vice President, Property Development.
“Our continued expansion of both chains also demonstrates our commitment to further building our presence in both existing and newer markets. With these recent openings, we currently operate a combined total of 1,952 Ross Dress for Less and dd’s DISCOUNTS locations in 40 states, the District of Columbia, and Guam,” added Mcgillis.
