Ross vice chairman, president and ceo Michael Balmuth said, “We believe this transaction offers a rare chance to enhance our long-term growth prospects and returns by adding these stores, almost all in our highly productive, core Sunbelt states.”
The $4.9 billion off-price retailer said that site conversion work following the move will increase its fiscal 2006 capital expenditures by up to $10 million.
