TJ Maxx quietly closing three stores leaving customers sad and scrambling just before the holiday season

CUSTOMERS have reported finding deals at shuttering TJ Maxx stores leading up to the brand's closure of three major stores.

Final sales are on at two TJ Maxx stores as the locations head toward their closing days during the holiday season.

TJ Maxx shut down one store in October and announced plans to shut down two more in January.

Stores in Brooklyn, New York, and Chicago, Illinois, are set to shutter on January 6.

A TJ Maxx previously told The U.S. Sun it was shuttering the Brooklyn location because of "real estate strategies."

"We are grateful for the loyalty of our New York City customers and invite them to visit our nearby stores to continue to find great values," the company said to The U.S. Sun.

The store also said it would transfer employees at the store to nearby TJ Maxx locations.

The company didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the upcoming Illinois store closure.

TJ Maxx said the same real estate considerations forced the Chicago closure in comments to Book Club Chicago.

The company reported operating 1,300 US stores across the US.

There are six more TJ Maxx locations in Chicago that will remain open.


TJ Maxx closed a store in St. Paul, Minnesota, on October 8.

The two upcoming store closures may follow the same playbook that the Minnesota location took in its final days.

During its closure, an employee told The U.S. Sun that items were up to 20 percent off during liquidation sales.

Customers flocked to social media to mourn the loss of the St. Paul store.

"The only TJ Maxx in MN with the best deals," one fan wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

"Love the employees too! I’ll make sure to stop there a couple more times before the closing date."


TJ Maxx's sibling store just announced that it will end all online operations.

TJX, the brand that owns TJ Maxx, announced plans to stop e-commerce sales at HomeGoods.

The last online sales for the home brand went through on October 21.

The company emailed customers to warn them about the impending closure in September.

"We’ve made the decision to focus our resources on our brick-and-mortar stores and will no longer offer online shopping," the email said.

"Can’t wait to see you in one of our many stores again soon!"

The U.S. Sun reports on other store closures - another TJX brand is shutting down a store in a major city.

Also, this Staples rival is shutting down a popular location.
