 ROSS 'DRESS FOR LESS' LAUNCHES 1992 EXPANSION
 NEWARK, Calif., March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- California-based Ross


Stores Inc. (NASDAQ: ROST) announced today the launching of its expansion program for 1992. Eight new Ross 'Dress for Less' stores are opening throughout its existing markets this spring. With these new locations, Ross will operate a total of 211 stores in 18 states.
 In commenting on his company's continued growth, Norman A. Ferber, president and chief executive officer, stated, "During 1991, we emphasized the competitive values Ross offers everyday on name brand merchandise for the entire family. This strategy worked well, in spite of the tough economic environment, giving us the confidence to move forward with our 1992 expansion program. We believe our emphasis on brands and savings will continue to attract value-conscious customers throughout the country, and support our plans for growth during the coming years."
 Ross is committed to building market share in existing markets, as demonstrated by its major expansion thrust in the Washington D.C. area. Four new stores are opening this month. There will now be a total of 17 Ross 'Dress For Less' stores in the Washington/Baltimore megalopolis. Its goal is to be the dominant off-price retailer in this key market.
 Ross is also fortifying its position in its Philadelphia market, with a new store in Lansdale, Pa. There are now a total of eight Ross locations in the Philadelphia/South New Jersey area. Other new Ross stores are opening in Tampa, Fla., El Paso, Texas, and Los Angeles. The eight new stores opening this spring are the first of 20 new locations that Ross plans for 1992.
 Ross Stores Inc. generated sales of $930 million in its 1991 fiscal year. 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 store prices, as well as complete departments for accessories and fragrances at similar savings.
