 ROSS 'DRESS FOR LESS' CELEBRATES
 SOUTH ARLINGTON GRAND OPENING
 NEWARK, Calif., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Ross 'Dress For Less' will celebrate the grand opening of its newest store in South Arlington on Sunday, Nov. 1, the company said today. Two other stores will also open this month in the San Francisco Bay Area and a fourth store in San Diego, completing the retailer's planned expansion program of 23 new stores for 1992. Ross now has 225 stores in 18 states across the nation.
 In commenting on this growth, Norman A. Ferber, president and chief executive officer, stated, "During 1992, we have made a major expansion throughout key existing markets. Our objective is to dominate all of our important trade areas by opening prime fill-in locations like our new store in South Arlington."
 The 24,000-square-foot store will open in Briarwood Station, a new 450,000-square-foot power center at the southwest corner of I-20 and Cooper Street. Ross and Pace coanchor this new center, which is conveniently located across from the Parks Regional Mall. Ross also operates an existing store on East Pioneer in Arlington.
 All new stores opening this month and going forward include a new department at Ross called "Home Accents." It features a wide selection of gift items for the home, such as china, crystal, glassware, ceramics, framed art and picture frames, at competitive everyday discounts. Home Accents will be in over 60 Ross locations across the country in early November, and will expand to about 150 stores by the end of 1993.
 Ross Stores Inc. (NASDAQ: ROST) generated sales of $930 million in its 1991 fiscal year and will pass the billion dollar mark in fiscal 1992. The off-price retailer offers first quality, in-season, branded apparel and footwear for the entire family at 20 percent to 60 percent less than department and specialty stores.
