Two More New Stores Coming On Randall Corridor

Off-price apparel and home fashion retailer Ross Dress for Less finally revealed Monday why the company wouldn't admit it was remodeling the old Circuit City site in Algonquin Commons.
The company with stores in 26 states--and Guam--will open a dozen locations in the Chicago area all at once in October.

A release from the company reports the new stores in Algonquin, Arlington Heights, Bloomingdale, Crystal Lake, Matteson, Naperville, Niles, Orland Park, Rockford, Schaumburg, Skokie and South Elgin will as a group employ about 600 people and will start accepting job apps Aug. 15 here: http://www.rossstores.com./job_search.aspx .

Meanwhile, over the weekend workers finished putting up the sign for a new retailer to open Aug. 19 in Oakridge Court.  Teen and pre-teen "trend-right" store fiVe BELoW (sic) will sell an eclectic verging on random assortment of stuff the company thinks kids want, all priced between $1 and $5. It's the latest venture by the guys who invented the Zany Brainy educational store chain that flew high, but then hit the ground hard about 10 years ago.
