Ross Dress for Less for fall
Happy Tuesday, everyone! Slightly cooler breezes are blowing here and have me smiling today! So, let’s discuss Ross Dress for Less for Fall.
Last week, Leigh Ann and I drove by a store we have not frequented in a long time. We decided then to check out Ross for fall.
There are many new locations of Ross in our area, but for this post I only went to two.
We both were Ross shoppers in the past, but in the last two years ceased to have it on our targets.
So let’s look at Ross for fall and see what we discovered plus our takeaway opinions.
ROSS FOR FALL: CLOTHING
I have always preferred the other two with Marshall’s being my favorite. Ross does not seem to require the care put into displays, cleanliness, and dressing rooms that Marshall’s in our area does.
That is evident in the dirty mirror in the top image.
It may not be true, but my perception has always been that they get the bottom of the barrel merchandise.
However, we still saw some very nice pieces at Ross for fall.
Leigh Ann found a pair of excellent Michael Kors $125 dark denim jeans for $17.
If the jacket I have on had been larger, it would have come home with me…the design of that jacket is so flattering and lovely and it is only $35.
Both locations I visited over the weekend had very heavy garments at Ross for fall.
Whenever, it is cooler here, I will stop by to see what they have. I just could not bring myself to try items on when it was so hot outside and the dressing rooms not the best.
However, I saw several nice designer garments with lots of interesting details that would be fun to consider.
The Southwestern cardigan was gorgeous if you are into that style…for the cool palette ladies It would look lovely with a white blouse.
After looking at Ross for fall, I did decide I will return there to see what is on the racks occasionally.
But, I like to go in “quiet times” because Ross still only has one checker. I understand getting help is a challenge right now, but Marshalls has a full load of checkers.
ROSS FOR FALL: DECOR
Ross for fall included some cute fall decorations for the home.
I almost purchased these pillows….they were so cute…but talked myself out of them.
While I saw some nice items at Ross for fall, I would still prefer Marshall’s for home decor or even HomeGoods.
It just seems like the selections are Ross are not the same…again, displays make a difference.
Nevertheless, regular Ross shoppers will find at Ross for fall some nice decor.
ROSS FOR FALL: ACCESSORIES
Before the pandemic, I often stopped by Ross to shop the shoes, purses and toys.
Ross for fall always included great toys for gifts and the holidays…however, all three of these departments are depleted.
In fact, the shoes at Marshall’s stores are the same…way lower than they previously had been.
These stores were go to retailers for me to find shoes and boots…no longer is that the case.
Marshall’s selections of purses exceeds Ross for fall.
My assessment of Ross for fall at this point is that I will stop by occasionally to see what they have for clothing.
However, unless they beef up the other departments, I will not be shopping there as often.
I just wanted to give you an honest review and proper assessment of what we discovered.
I may try one of their newer locations in town to see if there is improvement in some of these areas.
I did not see enough positives to draw me away from Marshall’s as my first choice for affordable designer shopping.
Location is important in my fast paced world and that is why I do not go to TJ Maxx except on rare occasions…they are out of my wheelhouse.
OK….any Ross shoppers here? Please feel free to tell us more positives about Ross in your area if you know them. Do you go there often? If so, please tell us why.
I will add that Ross is usually an easy in easy out location with not alot of fuss like you find with a mall. I could see stopping there for a quick look if need a special outfit at Ross for fall.
I understand that all of us are making adjustments in today’s economy and I do believe this fall and holiday seasons we are going to see great sales at our favorite stores….that also makes me re-think Ross for fall.
Would love to have you join in this conversation….and make sure that you always….
