TJ Maxx, borrowing from Loehmann’s Back Room, is opening high-end (but sale priced) designer boutiques in 40 stores nationwide. These stores within a store will feature major European and American designers for up to 60% off retail price.
I’ve seen the selection at the TJ Maxx on 6th Avenue in NYC and, while I found a few great deals (black D&G cigarette pants for $40) for the most part it was nothing to get too excited about.. well at least not yet…Reader Tamara agrees. She wrote:
“Honestly, it wasn’t anything to write home about – prices were nowhere near rock bottom ($399 for a Prada blazer) and the selection looked like the remnants that Saks Off Fifth didn’t want. I think this is the company’s attempt to compete with Filene’s Basement. A half-hearted try, but it may shape up with time.”
