Are you a Marshalls or T.J. Maxx shopper? Earlier this week TJ Maxx & Marshalls announced that they will be jumping on the online bandwagon by opening an online store soon. I prefer TJM and I have also been to a "TJ Maxx Runway Store" where I saw handbags priced at $360.00. Just in case you have been hiding under a rock and have not been to these stores here is the scoop:
The TJX Companies, Inc., is the largest international apparel
and home fashions off-price department store chain in the United States. Based
in Framingham, Mass., the company originally evolved from the Zayre discount
department store chain, founded in 1956, which opened its first branch of T.J.
Maxx in 1976 and its first BJ's Wholesale Club in 1984. In 1988, Zayre sold
their own nameplate to Ames, a rival discount department store chain, and the
company renamed itself to The TJX Companies, Incorporated. In 1995, TJX doubled
in size when it acquired Marshalls. TJ Maxx & Marshalls was consolidated to
form the Marmaxx group which includes - T J
Maxx, Marshalls & Home Goods.
