Here's the Ross website MsM. Check the map at the top right. Many states don't have one. They are great for bargain hunters. I don't think they are like Kohl's at all.

I wpouldn't know, have never seen a Kohl's...was just going by the advertising info about brand names for less.

Ross is on the lowest tier, aside from a dollar store.

I love my wooden spoons ... some were my mother's, and still going strong. I love the lazy spoons that RR uses on her show, that clip on the side of the pot, but I'm a lefty and can't use them ... even some of the flat spoons that are angled as not suited to a lefty ... oh, well.

Does Kohl's carry the same stuff? There are many of those in my area but the nearest Ross is 1 hour+ away from me.

I'm sorry, I don't know, never been to a Kohl's, Kayelle says they are not the same.

I was ASSuming...from hearing the TV ads...but apparently I am mistaken.

Marshall's, TJMax, Ross=alike. Mostly apparel, often name brands and many household items at drastically reduced prices all the time.

Kohl's, JC Penney's, Sears= alike. Bargains occasionally on sale.

MsM......... take an afternoon for yourself, and check out Ross. I don't go with a girlfriend, as we often want the same stuff. One of a kind, mostly.
Sometimes they have a bunch of good kitchen stuff, but it's kind of a crap shoot from week to week.

Thanks for the hierarchy, I was usure of where they fit.

See, I learned something new today, time to go rot my brain with vodeo games now.

I have a really big bowled, chunky handled wooden spoon and spatula. I love them. The flat spatulas are so handy. I even have a (regular sized) flat spoon shaped one that is often handy. If I am creaming butter and sugar, I don't have to dig stuff out of the bowl.

The thing I hate about wood is it warps, bloats, drys out and cracks. If you don't wash immediately the food cements itself to the wood!! It takes on odors and flavors easily!! I have ruined dishes because they wind up tasting like previously cooked food or dish soap. It is scary that if it smells like old food are there little buggies feeding on it and waiting to happily inhabit the next food dish and our bodies!!
Actually, wood is surprisingly sanitary. It has weird properties that let it suck micro-organisms inside and kill them later. They have done tests on wooden cutting boards and germs are gone from the surface quite fast.
