With multiple retail chains closing stores in Michigan, some good news exists for shoppers, with a popular discount retailer set to enter the state.
I have written several articles recently about the retail issues forcing stores to close across Michigan and the United States.
The retail industry has been hit hard of late; over the last month, more than 1400 retail stores have been listed to close, with the possibility of more to come.
While this is sad news, it represents an opportunity for savvy retail businesses, and Ross Dress for Less seems to be taking advantage of the situation.
Ross Dress for Less is a national chain of discount department stores with over 1,500 stores across the United States- but none in Michigan. However, it looks like that is set to change.
Today, Southgate City Administrator Dan Marsh confirmed that the city had approved permits and will soon have a Ross Dress for Less store. It will be located in the shopping center at Dix Toledo and Eureka Roads in the former Office Depot location.
Likewise, an official in White Lake city's planning department confirmed a Ross Dress for Less would open in the old Bed Bath & Beyond location on M-59.
The White Lake store is set to open in the summer, but no date has been given for the Southgate City store.
The two locations will be the first Ross Dress for Less stores in Michigan, and it appears more will be coming soon.
I will update readers as soon as new locations and opening dates are provided.
