ROSS Dress For Less Grand Opening {Giveaway!}

Last night I attended the VIP Insider Event at ROSS Dress For Less for a sneak peek at one of their NEW Chicago area stores. I had never been in ROSS before but heard it was a store with designer items at a discounted price. I love to shop but even more than that I love to find a good bargain so I was excited to see what ROSS Dress For Less was all about.

Ross Dress for Less, the nation’s largest off-price apparel and home fashion chain with over 1,000 stores in 27 states, will celebrate its initial entry into the greater Chicago area with the grand opening of 12 new locations on Saturday, October 8th. Savvy shoppers will find the same styles and brand names they see at department stores for 20 percent to 60 percent less at the new stores in Algonquin, Arlington Heights, Bloomingdale, Crystal Lake, Matteson, Naperville, Niles, Orland Park, Rockford, Schaumburg, Skokie and South Elgin. To celebrate these grand openings, each store is offering customers a chance to win a $500 shopping spree or one of five $100 shopping sprees from Saturday, October 8th, to Sunday, October 16th.

I found really good deals while I was shopping last night. Here is what I bought:

1) A name brand winter coat for myself that was originally $260 for $62.99

2) A name brand train engine for Lucas

3) A name brand train building set for Jacob

4) A children’s book of Bible Promises

5) A package of pillowcases

Total: $92.81

I will definitely be going back to ROSS! The employee who took us on a tour of the store told us that his tip is to shop ROSS first and I can see why. Once you shop at ROSS you will never want to pay full price again! They even had things at discounted prices that I wouldn’t expect to see like coffee from my favorite coffee shop, kid’s soccer gear, furniture, and bath and body products. Another tip he gave us was to shop early and shop often. He said they get new inventory five times a week!

Want to find out for yourself what makes ROSS Dress For Less so fabulous? Well, I have a surprise for you….

    I would buy my daughter some CUTE rainboots instead of the ugly, cheap looking mustard yellow things she hates wearing, but as a single mom, its what we could afford. And they are a necessity where we live – especially this time of the year. Thankfully she is a great sport and we ‘decorated’ the ugly boots with permanent markers. I’d love to surprise her with some pretty, stylish and fashionable rain boots that she isn’t embarrassed to wear.
