Ross Dress for Less is opening 12 stores this weekend in Chicagoland. If you're not familiar with the valley girl's secret guilty pleasure (aka) Ross the stores sell name-brand and designer apparel, accessories, and footwear plus a lot of no-name generic brands for bargain basement prices. Brands carried include Nine West, Liz Claiborne, Nike, Reebok, Keds, Mundi, Harajuku Lovers, Ralph Lauren LeSportsac, LoopNYC, Guess, Van Zeeland, Polo, Fossil, Baby Phat.
Every trip to Ross Dress for less is a is a gamble, but our best suggestion is to get there early, and scout out the good stuff. After that, to celebrate the grand openings, you can enter to win $100 or $500 shopping sprees through the 16th of October. Additionally, the Chicagoland locations are donating some big money to Various charities and The Boys & Girls Clubs hoping you'll go in and check out the stores.
