B-TOWN BIZ: New Ross Dress For Less To Open In Burien ‘Sometime In July’

Print This Post  Email This Post

Last December, we first reported that a new Ross “Dress For Less” department store will be opening at the space formerly occupied by Office Depot at 15716 1st Ave South, and now we have confirmation that it will be opening within two months.

Scott Schaefer dropped by the site Monday afternoon (May 23rd) and took the following pics:

Workers spent most of Monday painting the exterior walls where signage will be installed.

A peek inside shows that there's still a way to go before the store opens for business.

A worker is reflected in the glass as he lowers himself down.

While we were there we spoke with the construction foreman, who told us to expect the store to open “sometime in July.”

Crews are making modifications on the space, including re-wiring the electrical and other major work.

As we learn more information about what will surely become one of Burien’s biggest retail shops, we’ll update the blog, so stay tuned!

      Having a discount store in Burien has nothing to do with class. People can be so ignorant.

    • LizzyGirl says:

      Idiot. If you don’t like it here in Burien, then move.

    • Tracey Gardner says:

      I can’t wait for an actual store to open in Burien. Fred Meyer is all we have. Driving to Southcenter is a pain. It may be called a discount store but it’s not a thrift store. Walmart is next!!!!!!

    I love Ross and just glad to have another clothing store in Burien. I despise going to the mall. Let’s keep the tax money in Burien, not Tukwila.

  5. Dude Ross is like the best. Just cauz its a dicount store doesn’t mean nothing! If u don’t like ross then screw you!

      How nice it is in the morning to get up and read all these wonderful, polite, well spoken comments on this site – all this heat about a store opening? Save your anger and poor language for something else, please

        I don’t know about you, but I get up in the morning and shower and go to work, not whine about blogs.
