Ross, dd’s discount stores scheduled for 6 Corners Plaza – Nadig Newspapers

Ross Dress For Less and its sister store, dd’s Discounts, are moving to Six Corners Plaza at the southeast corner of Cicero and Milwaukee avenues, according to Alderman Jim Gardiner (45th).

Ross will occupy the retail space on the building’s first floor, while dd’s will operate in the basement, according to the Six Corners Association.

On January 6, the city’s buildings department issued a building permit for the project, calling for the construction of 37,643 square feet of retail space in the one-story building at 3927 N. Cicero Ave . The building, whose former tenants included LA Fitness and Game Stop, has rooftop parking.

Founded in 1982, California-based Ross calls itself “the nation’s largest low-cost retail chain.” Its first dd opened in 2004, offering discounted clothing, shoes, household items and toys.

In 2016, a Ross store was planned for the former Bank of America site at 3911 N. Milwaukee Ave., across from Six Corners Plaza. However, in early 2017, the developer of the “Point” project abandoned plans for a one-story shopping center on the former bank site and proposed a 10-story senior housing development, which has stalled following Gardiner’s opposition to the plan.

Meanwhile, Ross has also been announced as one of the planned tenants for the Edens Collection Mall which is under construction at 4635 W. Foster Ave.
