The folks at Ross Dress for Less are holding a grand opening celebration for their new Alameda Towne Centre store at 9 a.m. this Saturday, October 9. The store will sit in the 30,187-square-foot former Safeway building. Celebrants will include Mayor Beverly Johnson and Stomper from the Oakland A’s.
The discount clothing store will also be offering customers a chance to win a $500 shopping spree or one of five $100 shopping sprees between now and October 17. And they’ll also offer $1,000 checks to the Boys & Girls Club of Alameda and the Alameda County Community Food Bank.
