Ross Stores to start work on 1.7 million sq ft Buckeye distribution center

Ross Stores to Start Work on Distribution Center in Phoenix Suburb

Fast-growing Buckeye, Arizona will be the site for a new 1.7 million square foot Ross Stores distribution center. It will be close to Interstate 10 on Southern Ave. and Watson Road.

Ross Stores paid $28.3 million for the 213 acre site earlier this year. The facility will be across from a Walmart distribution center. A Union Pacific rail line runs right by the site.

The company recently announced it was planning to open 100 stores in 2022.  It’s the largest off-price apparel and home fashion chain in the United States with 1,669 locations in 40 states.

The US Census lists Buckeye, 20 miles west of Phoenix, as one of the nations fastest growing cities. It almost doubled its population, to 90,000 residents in 2020, from 50,000 in 2010.
