I write extensively about the T.J. Maxx off-price retail chain. In recent months, most of my articles on the subject have detailed unexpected store closures. In that spirit, this piece regards a Minnesota closure that has reportedly come as a surprise to both company employees and area residents.

Firstly, per ScrapeHero.com: There are 1,306 TJ Maxx stores in the United States as of July 18, 2023. The state with the most number of TJ Maxx locations in the US is California, with 122 stores, which is about 9% of all TJ Maxx stores in the US.

Let us explore.

T.J. Maxx, 2023

According to a report from BringMeTheNews.com, the location will shutter October 8th.

As excerpted from the report: The TJ Maxx store in St. Paul's Midway is closing its doors next month. The closure is confirmed by a sign on the store's front doors, which says that its final day in business will be Sunday, Oct. 8.

Bring Me The News, as well as other media outlets, received the following official statement from TJ Maxx: Our T.J. Maxx store at the Midway Marketplace, 1410 University Avenue West, in St. Paul, is expected to close by October 8, 2023. We are always assessing and reviewing our real estate strategies, and our decision to close this store reflects that thinking. We have offered the approximately 55 store Managers and Associates working at this location positions at nearby stores...

The closing will be 10 years to the day of the store's opening.
