Ross Dress for Less still is coming to the former Grand Forks Treasure Hunter’s building.

The retailer has set a move-in date of Oct. 9, according to Alan Gottlieb with Los Angeles-based Real Estate Affiliates, a co-developer with Roers.

Roers, a development company in Fargo, bought the building at 2450 S. Columbia Road in June 2017.

Ross announced in 2017 it was coming to Grand Forks, along with PetSmart and Harbor Freight Tools, which have already moved into the building and operated for several months.

But everything is on schedule, Roers Development President Larry Nygard. His company bought the building at 2450 S. Columbia Road in June 2017 and worked with all three retailers.

Ross has set a move-in date, but it is not public yet.

“They open a couple hundred stores a year, so it’s truly an orchestral production when they open,” Nygard said.

Grand Forks would be Ross’s second North Dakota location after Bismarck.

“Ross is anxious to come to Grand Forks,” Nygard said.
