Ross was incorporated in California in 1957. From 1957 to 1982, Ross operated as a small, family-operated junior department store chain in the San Francisco Bay Area. In August 1982, Stuart Moldaw, the company's Chairman Emeritus, and a group of investors acquired the six-store chain and converted the locations to the current off-price format.

The company went public on August 6, 1985.
