Giveaway ~ $25 Ross Giftcard to Celebrate Grand Opening of Ross Dress For Less


I know I usually blog about food, but as my waistline has grown, I have decided to branch out and let you know of other cool things you may be missing. This post is the perfect transition to that.

Last Friday marked the Grand Opening of not one, but two new Ross stores in the metro. This marks Ross’ entrance into the Kansas City area. Ross Dress for Less offers first-quality, in-season, name brand and designer apparel, accessories, footwear and home fashions for the entire family at everyday savings of 20% to 60% off department and specialty store regular prices.

I was invited to attend the grand opening event with some other bloggers from KC and the staff treated us like Royalty! I also have to mention that I am thrilled this was in my neck of the woods!


Fist we were taken to breakfast, where we were greeted by a beautifully decorated table with a fabulous canvas tote at each place setting. The Ross executives gave us the scoop on the concept of Ross and the "No Frills, Just Thrills" shopping approach it offers and $50 gift card to Ross to shop with.

I was able to attend this event with my sister and after breakfast we were taken back to the store, given a quick tour and the afternoon to shop away!! The prices truly are amazing and my $50 went a long way!


 The store is great and full of brand name merchandise. There is truly something for everyone and the prices really area amazing. As I chatted with some of the Ross executives, I learned that they really do want to know what their customers want and are always looking for feedback. So if you have a request be sure to let them know.  I requested more long and tall items. Being 5'11" and having a daughter that is 6'2" we are forever trying to find things that are long enough!



I was thrilled to find a pair of name brand jeans that were actually long enough, I also got a great figure 8 scarf, pair of tights, monogrammed towels and some fun slippers that double as dust mop to keep the floor clean.  (I know kinda cheesy, but fun and they actually work!) I wear them all the time now.


Being that the store is so close to me I have already been back and scored a pair of jeans and a scarf for my daughter.  Also being the foodie that I am, I cannot fail to mention the great foodie section Ross has. It is filled with all sorts of goodies.

  4. I LOVE ROSSS! I've been to the independence store twice already! Living 5 mins away isn't helping with the budget either. They have so much unique stuff and are a bit cheaper than tjmaxx in my opinion.
