We have to be honest: Ross isn’t the biggest Black Friday destination. But if you want to shop Ross Black Friday regardless, we’ve got some tips on how you can save during the holidays and year-round. Unlike other retailers, including Target, Walmart, and Kohl’s, Ross stays fairly low-key for the biggest shopping day of the year. However, we still have mad love for Ross, so they’ll stay near the top of our favorite discount stores list.
So what can you honestly expect from Ross this holiday season, and what are Ross’ Black Friday hours in 2023? You can expect to find lots of deals including name brand products with savings of up to 70% off. Here we’ll break everything down for you, Ross Black Friday hours, plus what to shop for and what to skip.

First things first: Don’t expect to see a Ross Black Friday ad or sale in 2023.
Ross offers products at extremely high discounts year-round. So they don’t really do big doorbuster sales or storewide percentage-off discounts for Black Friday. That means if you’re hunting for the BIG holiday sales you’re likely going to want to shop elsewhere for Black Friday. You can get low prices any day of the year at Ross.
Will Ross be closed on Thanksgiving?
Up until recently, Ross remained open on Thanksgiving. However, last year, Ross stores were closed for the holiday. Will Ross be closed again this year? We’re still waiting for Ross to announce their Thanksgiving hours for 2023, so be sure to text BLACKFRIDAY to 57299 to subscribe for updates as they come out.
Ross Black Friday Hours 2023
Even on Black Friday, Ross hours vary by location. Last year, most locations opened early at 7 a.m., while others, opened at their regular hours. Expect that trend to continue into 2023. To find out what your local store is doing, use Ross’ store locator to contact them.
Mondays are the best day to shop at Ross — not specifically Black Friday.
You might find some extra markdowns on Black Friday — but you can also expect to see them every Monday at Ross.
Each department is updated at least once per month, and which department will be marked down when is only decided the day before on Sunday. So when you go in to shop on Monday, ask someone which sections were marked down to find the best deals.

On Black Friday, comparison shop perfumes between Ross and Walmart.
Walmart and Ross often carry the same brands of perfume. And sometimes, you can score it cheaper at Walmart, so be sure to comparison shop before assuming Ross has the lower price.
Unlike Ross, Walmart has a massive Black Friday sale. This time of year particularly, you’ll want to browse Walmart’s Black Friday deals before committing at Ross. Walmart’s Black Friday deals are the same online as they are in store, so comparison shopping is as easy as pulling out your phone. Check out our entire Walmart Black Friday guide for more.
Squishmallows are cheaper at Ross — if you can find them.
Ross doesn’t often have Squishmallows in stock — and it can be hard to find out where to buy rare Squishmallows this time of year. When Ross does have them, you’ll want to check them for the ‘Irregular’ tag if you’re buying for a true collector. ‘Irregular’ tags indicate the item is defective in some way.
But when they carry Squishmallows, Ross tends to beat out the competition for pricing. Between Ross, Amazon (where they’re always available), and Walmart (where you might find a rare design if you visit in-person), here’s the pricey-ness index:
- Ross ($)
- Walmart ($$)
- Amazon ($$$)
