Ross Dress for Less Coming to Northridge Fashion Center

New stores and restaurants are opening in Northridge.

The sign has gone up. Ross Dress for Less is opening soon at the Northridge Fashion Center.

Ross will occupy the former Circuit City location at 19330 Plummer St. Since the electronics retailer went bankrupt in 2009, the free-standing store has been a movie location and a Halloween store. But most of the time it has been empty.

The fashion discounter will be adjacent to the Romano's Macaroni Grill and the new Elephant Bar restaurant scheduled to open in March.

Elsewhere, overstock specialist Big Lots is planning a grand opening on March 1. The store moved in where discounter Marshalls departed at 8960 Tampa Ave.

During the grand opening celebration, Big Lots district manager Dan Weiss will present $1,500 to Napa Street Elementary School. Victoria Christie, principal, will accept the check on behalf of the school.

Do you know of a new business or one that has closed? Let Patch know in the comments box below.

An empty store was much better?

i just don't see the point in putting in yet another clothing store in the mall parking lot and then around the corner a big lots?? I'm all for employment going up, but these stores are an added change of a neighborhood goin down fast.

AKM 11 minutes ago "i just don't see the point in putting in yet another clothing store in the mall parking lot and then around the corner a big lots?" . . In this economy, no chain store is going to going to expand unless their studies show that the new location is going to be profitable.

well this is true as far as I see new apartments that have been built across from the mall. Tampa is crowded as is, beyond Plummer, past the mall all the way down to Parthenia, therefore I don't travel down Tampa for that reason. I guess the stores could be worse, I don't shop at either one of those stores, the last time I did, I was very poor and didn't have kids at the time. Now, I'm grown-up and can splurge a little more on the neccessities and not entirely go cheap when buying clothes for a need or whatever Big Lots has to offer.

and to add...we do have a lot of people who like budget stores and I commend that...so wait...retract my whole arguement...if there are things you cannot afford, by all means these stores are for you, i just realized I was one of them.

I think for all of you that make those kinda of comments are ridiculous. I am a current college student and there are plenty of items that are affordable and name brand. For those of you who call it trash that's just an ignorant remark Macy's at times looks just as filthy. I rather save my money on the clothes and spend it on what's more important. If you don't like the store instead of bitching about it then don't shop there. You must have a lot of time on your hands if you don't like it then don't go it's that simple.

how do i apply to this new store opening?!

If stores like are Ross and Marshall's are "trash" well then so must be Macy's, Nordstrom, Kohl's, Sears, even Abercrombie and Fitch, Calvin Klein, The Limited, and many more! Because that's where close out stores like Ross and Marshall's get their inventory!! Just sayin...
