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 St. Paul, Minnesota store that today has clarified its date of closure, despite what has been listed in earlier news reports.
Firstly, per ScrapeHero.com's most recently-updated store location count: 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 The-Sun.com, the St.Paul location will shutter October 13th. A company representative, however, told me that is not necessarily the case.
As excerpted from the report: "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," TJ Maxx told local outlet Bring Me The News in a statement. "We are grateful for the loyalty of our Minnesota customers and invite them to visit our nearby stores to continue to find great values."
The address of the store is 1410 University Ave W, St Paul, MN 55104.
It should be noted original reports stated the closure as being on October 8th, 10 years from the date of opening. Many, not all, of those reports have since been rectified.
However, I spoke to a T.J.Maxx company representative directly this morning for clarification, who informed me there is in fact no specific date of closing and that the store will shutter once it runs out of inventory. She said it was safe to assume, based on current remainders, the store will be out of inventory prior to October 13th.
In the event of pertinent updates to this matter, I will share them here on NewsBreak.
