Local nickname for the off-price retailer "Ross Dress for Less." Ross Stores is headquartered in nearby Pleasanton, CA, and also operates dd's Discounts. Since these stores offer prices even lower than the Dress for Less stores, they call them "dd's," which stands for "deep discounts." Of course this makes the name redundant (Deep Discount's Discounts).
