The new Ross Dress for Less store opened in Placerville this past Saturday, July 19.
According to its corporate office, the Placerville location is one of three new stores the company opened in Northern California last Saturday, bringing the total to 264 stores in the state.
The new stores are part of the retailer’s 2014 expansion program, totaling approximately 75 new locations during the year.
“The Placerville location was a great opportunity for us,” said Connie Wong, the director of investor and media relations for Ross Stores. "When deciding on any given location, we consider a variety of factors including targeted demographics that are in sync with our core customer, population density, great visibility and high-traffic counts.”
Calling itself the largest off-price apparel and home fashion chain in the United States, Ross promises first-quality, in-season, name brand and designer apparel, accessories, footwear and home fashions at prices lower than department and specialty stores. The company also operates dd’s DISCOUNTS with locations in 13 states.
Still in the process of hiring, on average each new Ross store hires approximately 50 new permanent full-time or part-time employees, according to Wong.
Nationwide, the company operates more than 1,300 stores in 33 states, the District of Columbia and Guam.
In 2013, it had revenues of $10.2 billion.
