On the move[edit]

  • I'm moving the page to "Ross Stores, Inc." as "Dress for Less" is just the tagline. WizardDuck 01:02, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Rosslogo.PNG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Rosslogo.PNG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 10:40, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Do We Really Need This?[edit]

"Ross offers brand name clothing, footwear, bedding, furniture, fine jewelry, beauty products, and housewares. All merchandise is 20 - 60% below regular department and specialty store prices." That excerpt is from the history section. Seems really out of place. Should it be deleted?

Texas Supreme Court Case[edit]

Something of interest:

Ross Stores, Inc. v. Redken Laboratories 810 S.W.2d 741 (Tex 1991)
Mentioned in Distribution Law By Theodore L. Banks 1995 ISBN 0735502684
Redken filled a discovery request to learn how Ross was able to sell Redken products, since Ross was not a licensed Redken distributor, and its stores did not have professional beauticians or barbers, and it did not qualify as a resale outlet under Redken distribution agreements. Redken filed a motion for summary judgment arguing that the only what that Ross could have these products was through a distributor's beach of its contract.[1]

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: page moved. DrKiernan (talk) 17:09, 3 October 2012 (UTC)


Ross (company)Ross Stores – This was moved from Ross Dress for Less to Ross (company). This was not a good move, seeing as the official company is named Ross Stores, Inc. Being that we don't include the "Inc." (et. al), this should be moved to Ross Stores. phøenixMøurning ( talk/contribs ) 01:48, 17 September 2012 (UTC)
