We added a total of 12 stores to our largest markets of California, Texas, and Florida, while opening two stores in Ross’ newest mid-western state, Ohio.

Ross Dress for Less reopened its doors in May with lines of enthusiastic shoppers waiting to get inside following a weeks-long closure due to the pandemic. Ross stores have been doing a booming business since they reopened, which is a welcome bit of good news as the pandemic leaves a sea of store closures and bankruptcies in its wake.
