This past Friday, I was able to step out of my blogger and even my mom mindset and take part in some therapy — retail therapy! I will admit that I don’t shop for myself very often and when I do, I have to make sure it is a really good deal and that I really, really need it.
So, where did I shop? I went to Ross Dress for Less. They JUST opened up a store in Blue Springs, MO (Adams Dairy Parkway and I-70 to be exact). I had heard of the store before, but wasn’t sure what they really had to offer. I enjoyed learning a little bit about the company before I headed into the store to do my shopping.
I did not realize that this store has been around for 30 years! They have been in the southern part of the country for a long time but are moving north — which is good news for all of us! The prices are usually more than 50% off of retail. I saw a dress that was regularly priced at $59.99 for just $19.99. And no, it was not a second or defective garment – it was in a word – GORGEOUS — and steal. OK – so make that two words.
I had a lot of fun looking around the store. I was surprised to find shoes that my kids needed at more than 60% off of what I would have paid elsewhere. I picked up a scarf for myself — and yes — it was more than 55% off of the retail price! I had so much fun looking around the store. Since the inventory is limited (meaning that you won’t find 5 of the same shirt in all sizes), you have to put it into your cart even if you are thinking you might want it. Otherwise, when you go back to get it, it might very well be gone.
I had a great time and was shocked when I proceeded to the checkout with my items. Here is what I purchased:
- Boots for my son
- Shoes for my daughter
- Sweater Dresss
- Button Down Shirt
- 2 Pack of Tights
- Ballet Flats
