TJ Maxx to Bring Runway to Select Stores

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.”

I purchased a Gucci bag at a TJ Maxx store. I wore it 3 times and it started to rip by the zipper. I shipped it to Gucci to get it repaired and they sent it back to me saying it is not a Gucci bag. So be careful what you buy from them because it's most likely not real. Your best bet is to go to the designer stores direct. I am now questioning the other bags I have bought there. I will no longer be purchasing designer items from them !!

Are you buying them because their loubitions and you love the brand or are you buying them because they're a name brand? Use the cost per wear to figure out whether the shoes are worth it (are you going to really wear the shoes?).

It's a shame they don't give the men/boys more of a selection at TJ Maxx (a larger section for us both would be nice, as well). I know most of the men out there have their wives or girlfriends do their shopping, but some of us can actually accomplish it on our own. It's difficult, though, when most stores are 90% aimed toward women. Oh well, guess we'll just have to settle for our 10%.

You can definately find some good deals at TJ Maxx, but I agree with the others, you have to have lots of time to sift through the junk.  I found a $365 Joie puffer vest for $79.99, and a Theory cashmere V-neck sweater for $39.99 and a Theory cashmere cable-knit vest for $39.99 as well.  I find alot of Theory, Juicy, and Michael Kors petite clothing.  Sometimes I see some fairly good handbags, like Dooney and Coach.  While I personally don’t carry those two brands (I am a Marc Jacobs gal), I have bought some of those cheap and sold them on Ebay for a nice profit.  I would like to check out a runway dept. but no TJ Maxx where I live has one. Boohoo.
