Furthest northeast this store goes is New Jersey, so there's another thing to add to the YMMV list.

Yep, "only in California".

Must be real fun livin in that head of yours.

Calm down, Kid. Obviously I didn’t literally mean this only happens in California. I mean, who knows what state your family lives / shops at Ross in. Hey, since it looks like you might know how to use google, look up a sense of humor. Wow, you’re right - this is fun!

I went to Ross yesterday and found no video game stuff, but I did find this shirt and these socks:

I assume the shirt says Year of the Dog, but I don't know Chinese so for all I know it says "Your Mother is a Dog!"   I would actually prefer that.  If anyone knows Chinese, let me know.  Socks are cool x-ray socks so I had to get them.  Shirt was $5.99 and socks were $4.99 (Yeah, I know, they should be shoes for that price).  Pictures of me wearing them on request.  Thanks for watching my Ross Dress for Less haul and don't forget to like, subscribe, and follow me!

The only time I go to one of these stores is after I've had Mexican at a particular restaurant which happens to be next to a Ross. Basically, I just walk up and down the aisles, crop dusting as I pretend to browse. It smells like ass in there anyway, so no one notices my gaseous contributions.

Ahh my favorite thread is back!
Come to the Ross thread for the deals
Stay for the culture.

Ah man, I've got a Ross that just opened in my area about a month ago.  Reading this thread, I'm a little intimidated. 

I've been to a few thriftstores so the smell of soiled clothes and dusty furniture/fixtures has my body prepared maybe.   How much time before a my local Ross becomes the symbol of my despair?

Fortunately,  there are no restaurants or Gamestops nearby to add to the smell.

Dude, Ross is just Marshall's with worse lighting.

Yeah, it's not really that bad.  Now the Rooms To Go outlet in Norcross (north of Atlanta) really stunk like piss.  Most furniture was returns (also a lot of scratch and dents) and it seems like everyone returned their furniture after a kid/dog/cat/pig/drunk pissed all over it.  I couldn't stand it in there.  Ughhh.  

 

Plus, they knocked off 10% for that soiling or broken glass in a case, etc.  Wouldn't even cover half the cost of cleaning/fixing the item.

If you ever want to feel true despair, go to a Tuesday Morning store.

Ross can be great for shoes. Got some Hyperdunk 2017s, Barkley CB34 retro, DRose fancy something edition all for under $40 each. Plenty of Lebron and KD shoes as well. Ross is great for me since it's hard to find my size in a normal store and it's often worth rolling the dice. Got my Chaps dress shoes there too.

Nothing wrong with Ross, the four I’ve been to have never smelled, and I got a damn good deal on some legit brands. It’s a hell of a good store for socks, kitchen stuff, bed and bath sh*t, and sometimes LEGO stuff. I’m not 15 so I have to buy all that stuff for my house. Marshall’s is a little better overall, but not for some stuff.

I’ve never seen any gaming stuff aside from some really bad 3rd party controllers but I’ll keep an eye out.

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.


Two Goodwills in my area, the main store is extremely overpriced and they make 100% sure you know if it doesn’t work, you aren’t bringing it back, despite it being 25% higher than MSRP.

The Goodwill bookstore though, it’s great. Always neat and tidy, games and movies have a flat price, and the employees are mostly well spoken, friendly, and well kept.

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

Um, check out the logo at the top of their site. Definitely has been called that for years.

I know that's their official name I've never heard a person actually use it. It's just Ross.

Ah man, I've been in a Marshall's before.  Marshall's seemed kind of like a Burlington Coat Factory without that old building smell.  I think I can handle worse lighting over smell.

 

If you ever want to feel true despair, go to a Tuesday Morning store.

I've been in a Tuesday Morning store before.  I don't recall it smelling like my despair.  Are the shelves really supposed to look like a disorganized mess or is it just my local store's employees being lazy/understaffed?

Is it Mexican Riviera, by any chance?

Is there a Marshall's/TJ Maxx thread?  Went in there looking for clearance poop bags for my dogs.  No luck there.  They had Star Wars Battlefront II for XB1 and PS4 for $19.99 and Madden 18 for XB1 for $12.99.  Clearance green Power A mini XBox controller for $16.  Hope this is of use to you disgusting discount store pigs.
