VOTING METHODS

The accompanying Proxy Statement describes proposals that are being submitted for a vote by stockholders at the Ross Stores, Inc. 2009 Annual Meeting to be held on May 20, 2009. If you are a stockholder of record of Ross Stores, Inc. as of March 27, 2009, you have the right to vote your shares, and may elect to do so, by Internet, by telephone, or by mail. You may also revoke your proxy at any time before the Annual Meeting. Please help us save time and postage costs by voting by Internet or by telephone. Both methods are generally available 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week and will ensure that your vote is confirmed and posted immediately. To vote:

1.

Go to the web site at www.proxyvote.com 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week.

  b.

Enter the Control Number that appears on the Proxy Card.

  c.

2.

BY TELEPHONE

On a touch-tone telephone, call toll-free 1-800-690-6903, 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week.

  b.

If your shares are held in the name of a bank, broker or other holder of record, you are considered a beneficial owner, whose stock is held in “street name,” and you will receive instructions for granting proxies from your bank, broker or other agent, rather than a proxy card. Your broker or nominee will enclose a voting instruction card for you to use in directing your broker or nominee as to how to vote your shares. A number of brokers and banks, however, are participating in a program provided through Broadridge Financial Solutions Inc. (“Broadridge”) that offers the means to grant proxies to vote shares by Internet and by telephone. If your shares are held in an account with a broker or bank participating in the Broadridge program, you may grant a proxy to vote those shares by Internet or by calling the telephone number shown on the instruction form received from your broker or bank.

We must receive votes submitted via the Internet by 11:59 p.m. PDT on May 19, 2009. Submitting your proxy via the telephone or Internet will not affect your right to vote in person should you decide to attend the Annual Meeting.
