Ross Dress For Less, 2023

According to a February 22nd report from, entitled “UPDATE: New Anchor Named For Kettering’s Town & Country; Other Stores Expand,” Ross Dress for Less is on its way to replace the departed Stein Mart as shopping center anchor.

As excerpted from the report: A new anchor tenant is expected for Town & Country Shopping Center as one business is expanding while another is relocating to a larger space, the Kettering retail complex co-owner said. Documents obtained by the Dayton Daily News on Wednesday indicate a Ross Dress for Less — a national clothing and home decor retailer with two Dayton-area locations — is planned for the site formerly occupied by Stein Mart.

The report went on to state: The name of the business was not identified by Senior Asset Manager and Broker Kelly Casto. Records received by the city of Kettering indicate Ross Dress for Less is the subject of a “tenant improvement package” for the site.

No dates have yet been announced for the apparent new opening.
