going into that glorified garage sale/thrift store kills the deal.

I may look for Guitar Hero since I haven't been able to track it down at Five Below.  Thanks for the heads up.

i love going to thrift stores, because they have thrift store prices. Ross charges way too much for what they are.

Thrift stores are better maintained. Every Ross I've had the misfortune of going to always looks like they'd just been carpet bombed.

Guitar Hero for Wii U, 360, and PS3 was at Five Below for months

You can probaly find a name brand dress shirt with a huge big ole nut stain on it as well. Rather a white polo Ralph Lauren sweater with brown stains on sleeves like somebody wiped their ass with it. I've seen it all but mainly TJ Maxx.

I have driven by them many times, never stopped.

 

Closest I came was turning around in the parking lot several times on McKnight Rd.

Do you feel like you need a hot shower after leaving?

I think this is literally the most YMMV thread I've ever seen on here.

 

I'm pretty sure Ross is mainly stocked with mismanufactured products and returns from non-crappy stores. Pretty much every Ross you walk into is going to have a completely different inventory.

That's the only explanation, because I've never seen a Ross in bad shape, let alone as bad as they're making then out to be.

Look, it's obviously YMMV.  I've seen some decently maintained Ross stores.  The on in downtown Seattle isn't bad, it's well stocked, and that's with what I assume a big homeless/shoplifting problem.  I've also see Ross stores in decent suburbs that look like shit because they barely staff enough people to man 1-2 registers let alone keep the floor looking good and the customers just trash stuff.  

 

None of that has ever stopped me from buying cheap shit, though I prefer TJ Maxx/Marshall's.  They are a little pricier, but tend to have a better selection from my experience.  

 

I mean, you weirdos will literally spend a day driving to 50 different Gamestops that all smell like sweat, teen hormones, and g-fuel, but you act like spending a few minutes in a Ross is the worst thing in the world.

Most of the Kohls and at least one of the walmarts around me seem to also have Skylanders and Guitar Hero at clearance prices. I went to a Ross on a whim and the place looked.....strange. A lot of asian people and the mens aisles were disorganized with products strewn on the floor in some areas while the women's section (which was easily half of the store) looked more presentable.

Goodwill is definitely worse than Ross aesthetically speaking. The WW1 widows running that place aren't great at maintaining it. Also Goodwill advertises the fact that their employees are literally unemployable anywhere else. It's the primary marketing tool used to get people to go there. Ross looks like a Macy's that was the victim of a 100 person snatch and grab like 5 minutes ago in perpetuity. I like both.

I was having a bad day until I read the last line. OMG that made me laugh for 10 minutes straight I thank you.

GH live is for Wii U has been $5 for months?  I have never seen it that low.  That would be a great game to buy my nephew.

I've never seen or heard it referred to as "Ross Dress for Less". It's just Ross.

I love this. The last Gamestop I went into literally had three sweaty dudes fighting over a Atgames Genesis clone console for 50 bucks. There's no telling what would have happened if I told them I had just bought an actual Genesis for 10 bucks at a thrift store not 20 mins earlier. Onions and Dew sweat would have rained down on me I'm sure.

I used to work at one. I felt dirty just being there. We only had one customer restroom with one stall. The smells oh the horror. I shit you not one time we had a customer shit in the ladies fitting room because another customer was blowing up the restroom. They attempted to persuade me to go in there and clean it up which I didn't. My cowoworker did however since he was a yes man and management had been leading him on making think he was going to move up within the company. He never did. He ended up quitting one day no call no show. A few weeks later I also quit without notice. Ross will just shit on you. Horrible company. This was at the location in Anaheim plaza in commiefornia

Only in California would some piece of garbage feel justified in shitting in a dressing room in a clothing store because someone else had the audacity to occupy the bathroom. Typical fucking de-evolution on full display.

Wow. I guess somehow Im living a sheltered life, this is certainly news to me, and f**king disgusting, and before anybody jumps on me, I dont live in a gated fairy-tale community, the last family dollar I went to a few weeks ago in downtown asbury park had broken crackviles littering the gutter in front of it, a shopping cart bum peeing in the alley next to it, and I was wondering if I was gonna get jumped inside the store.

I've played those AtGames consoles. Instead of fighting over it, they should have been running away.
