Exclusive Tour with T.J. Maxx

Dear Fashionistas,

Fashionista Chicago had the privilege to receive an exclusive walk-thru with T.J.Maxx Marketing guru Mikinzie Stuart from New York.  FC wanted to know just how does T.J.Maxx and Marshalls score such fabulous prices on cutting edge designers? It's no secret, their pocketbook is large and with that type of buying power one can see how they receive the incredible price-breaks.
Showcasing designers such as Max Mara, Cynthia Rowley, Coach and Theory, we made it easy for you to navigate the store by following these simple steps:

1.  Shop the aisle racks - This is where T.J. Maxx and Marshalls place their top designers to be sure they get ample visibility.

2.  Get to know your stores layout -  Knowing where the store features their top designers will help you navigate through the store.

3.  Shop often!  T.J.Maxx and Marshalls receive more than 10,000 new items each week (In every store).

4. Look for purple tags -   These tags are placed on elite brands found in high-end department stores (Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue) which means, if you see this, be sure to buy it.  You won't find a better price anywhere else.

5. Get to know your Manager - They know the inside scoop on the brands and will let you know when the one you are looking for arrives.

The T.J. Maxx on Fullerton Ave. has the above items now.  Don't miss out.
1. Calvin Klein Dress  2. Coach Ballerina Shoes  3.  Cynthia Rowley Tote   4.  Theory High Collar Coat

Ta Ta,


  1. When I find a good deal at either, I'm elated. But I am not the biggest fan of digging through rows and rows of mish-mashed clothing :( I do love Marshalls, though.....I'll have to pay closer attention, I suppose and really work at it since all those pieces above are fabulous!!

  2. Sher- That's what is so fabulous about my tips above. You don't have to dig. They are on the aisle display racks waiting for you to take them home:) Enjoy shopping at T.J Maxx and Marshalls!
