I write extensively about the Ross Dress For Less clothing chain for NewsBreak. Unlike other similar chains, the entity — despite financial challenges — is in the midst of an ambitious expansion.

Now comes word of the scope of said expansion, one that will see approximately 100 new Ross Dress For Less openings in multiple states.

Per There are 1,704 Ross Stores locations in the United States as of February 20, 2023. The state with the most number of Ross Stores locations in the U.S. is California, with 335 locations, which is about 20% of all Ross Stores locations in the U.S.

Let us explore further.

Ross Dress For Less, 2023

According to a report from, entitled “COME ON IN: Popular Clothing Retailer That Rivals TJ Maxx Plans to Add 100 Stores – See if Your City Will Get a New Business,” Ross Dress For Less plans to add the titular stores throughout 2023.

As excerpted from the report: Ross stores are bucking the so-called 'retail apocalypse' trend and aggressively expanding in 2023. The retailer announced that it had opened a combined 19 stores in February and March - 11 flagship Ross stores and eight Dd's Discounts stores.

As the company continues its expansion, specific states have been announced as receiving the new stores.

The report goes on to state: The openings are in 13 states including Texas, Florida, and California. Ross will also be openings its first-ever store in Wisconsin. And this is just a start, as the company plans on reaching 100 store openings for 2023. "These recent openings reflect our ongoing plans to continue the expansion of our two chains," said Gregg McGillis, Ross's group executive vice president of property development.


This is a developing story. In the event of pertinent updates to this matter, inclusive of progress and official announcements of milestone dates, I will share them here on NewsBreak.
