Ross Stores Inc. is planning to open a Ross Dress For Less location at 4600 Shelbyville Road in the Shelbyville Road Plaza shopping center.
The store will occupy the former Wild Oats space, which is about 28,000 square feet, according to Tommy Edwards, a retail leasing representative for Hagan Properties Inc., which owns the property.
Wild Oats closed the store in 2007, following its merger with Whole Foods.
Edwards said he expects Ross Dress For Less to open in March.
Ross Dress For Less opened a location at Jefferson Mall earlier this year.
Ross Stores (NASDAQ: ROST) is based in Pleasanton, Calif., and operates 1,097 Ross Dress For Less stores across the country.
Ross offers discounted name-brand and designer apparel, accessories, footwear and home fashions, according to the company’s Web site.
