Southgate Plaza Celebration of NEW Ross for Less Store

October 5, 2015

Southgate Plaza celebration of the Ross Dress for Less new store begins on October 10 at 8:45 a.m. with the Official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. Ross and Southgate Plaza representatives will join area dignitaries, including Sacramento County Board Supervisor Patrick Kennedy, to cut the opening ribbon. Both Ross Dress for Less and Southgate Plaza will make donations to eight area schools. Each school will receive a $200 donation to fund reading programs.

The new Ross Dress for Less store is the second national retailer to open in recent months at Southgate Plaza. Walmart Neighborhood Market opened in July at Southgate Plaza, which offers a new ambiance featuring building façade upgrades, exterior color palate and the addition of two digital monument signs.

Southgate Plaza is welcoming its newest addition with great giveaways and contests. The first 300 people to enter Ross Dress for Less on October 10 will receive a reusable shopping bag filled with Southgate Plaza merchant savings coupons.

Following the October 10 opening people will have the opportunity to win prizes through October 18 via social media and on-site contests. People who post a selfie picture taken outside the new Ross store on the Southgate Plaza Facebook page will be automatically entered in a contest with daily selection of winners to receive a $25 Ross gift card.

People who come to Southgate Plaza and visit Baskin-Robbins, Panda Wok or AJ Nails and Spa October 10 through October 25 can submit an entry for the chance to win more than $1,000 in prizes: $500 grand prize Ross shopping spree, five (5) $100 Ross gift cards, and prizes from other Southgate Plaza merchants. Entry forms are available for download on Southgate Plaza Facebook, website and via direct mail.
