The under-construction Sunset Hills location has drawn the attention of St. Louis-area carpenters.
The Carpenters' District Council of Greater St. Louis and Vicinity is letting Ross Dress for Less and area consumers know it isn't happy. Since July 10, the Carpenters have been setting up a banner twice daily on weekdays on the Lindbergh Boulevard roadside outside the Ross Dress for Less store currently under construction.

"We're just trying to keep money in the local economy," said Chris Basil, a Carpenters handbiller …

The store will be housed in the former CompUSA on Lindbergh.
Just in time for the holiday season, Ross Dress for Less will finally open in the old CompUSA location at 3614 Lindbergh. According to the South County Times, last October developer Jim Sansone publicly hinted that the former CompUSA location was in the process of gaining a new tenant, but he didn't divulge more due to a confidentiality agreement. Sunset Hills Alderman Stephen Webb reported last week that discussions with Sansone have been in the works for some time, but the tenant finish plans are now approved by City staff. "They still have some approvals to obtain from the County, but assuming all goes well, by the end of the year Sunset Hills will be home to a Ross Dress for Less store," Webb said.
