Roses Stores

Roses Stores

Roses Stores (originally known as P.H. Rose) is a regional discount store centered out of Henderson, North Carolina. Once dominant in the mountainous regions and rural areas of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee, the chain has dwindled due to the expansion of Wal-Mart in the region.

The Roses chain not only anchored strip centers, but also once anchored many enclosed shopping malls. Unable to adequately compete and falling under poor management, many stores closed, including those mall locations, and the stores never were updated to compete with Wal-Mart. Several stores are still operational.

Roses made several unsuccessful attempts to be acquired in the mid-1990s. At the retailer's peak, it operated approximately 278 stores mainly in North and South Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia.

Roses was purchased by Variety Wholesalers Inc. in 1997 [ [ Variety Wholesalers: About Us] ] . The company has approximately 101 stores. It has scaled back its desire to operate as a discount store, focusing more on a high-end dollar concept.
