Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on May 20th, 2014

ballard-blocks-rendering-5-6-14_600xx4800-3200-800-0According to a report by the Puget Sound Business Journal, a Ross Dress for Less store will be opening at Ballard Blocks (4609 14th Ave NW) mid next year.

The store will be approximately 35,000 square feet and it will open on the second level of the Ballard Blocks building.

The opening of the Ballard store will bring the total Seattle Ross locations up to five and will add another to the more than 1,000 Ross locations nation wide.

According to the report, the latest tenants to move into the 131,000-square-foot complex were Sharkey’s in June 2013 and Top Pot Doughnuts in January 2013.

With the addition of Ross to the list of tenants, Ballard Blocks will become 93 percent full.

The My Ballard team will keep readers informed of the opening date when it is known.

    Even though the sign has been up for a few months, I’m still shocked…

    The signs have been up for awhile now, so it’s curious that they won’t open until the middle of next year. That’s more than a year away…what on earth do they have to do to the space? I would have expected it to be more move-in ready!

    Ballard Bridge Cafe has been open in the building for a few months.

    Who thought putting a discount chain like ROSS into a young, hip, gentrified neighborhood that, increasingly is only accessable to those making over 100k per year is going to be a great business idea?….$5 latte’ (not at Starbucks because that’s too corporate), $8 organic soy-butter sandwich (because you’re allergic to pesticides and nuts)…and a discounted FUBU t-shirt?!?

    Can’t we at least get a Lamonts or a Mervyns?

    Can’t wait! Would love to see it open this year rather than next, though. I think this is the perfect location for this type of business – room for it, plenty of parking, etc. The boutiques are great but bettter suited to the small storefront areas. A broad mix of retail gives us better options to shop near home.

    Why Ross when Fred Meyers is so great.

    As one of those 100K hip trendy professional females, I’m thrilled with Ross coming to town.

    Fred Myer’s is good for toiletries, but not for clothing.

    Why go downtown to buy Prada pants for $800 when I can pay $500 for them at a Ross? (I’ve literally bought designer current fashion at 1/2 the price many a times!)

    PS. I recently paid only $60 for queen sized sheets that were 600 TC. Fred Meyer’s probably even carry 600 TC sheets as they’re similar to a Walmart, one level removed…..

    Glad a ross store or the store from downtown moving to ballard, closer to home one 6 minute bus ride.

    Ross is convenient most home furnishing easy pick ups from pillows to pots an pans to curtain rods to shoes.
    negative side some prices higher than wal-mart , Fred myers 90% of merchandise are refurbished or wholesale from wholesale dealers but they sell items at full price.
