From Brookfield T.J. Maxx making move to Danbury

July 24, 2018

The T.J. Maxx store in the Candlewood Plaza Shopping Center will close early next month and relocate to the Berkshire Shopping Center on Newtown Road in Danbury.

TJX, the parent company of T.J. Maxx, announced on Tuesday the grand opening for the new store will be Aug. 9. The new store will be next door to HomeGoods, another TJX store.

“Our newest store in Danbury will offer an ever-changing selection of high-quality, on-trend and brand-name merchandise at the amazing prices T.J.Maxx is known for,” Tim Miner, T.J. Maxx president, said in a release. “Our buyers create a unique mix that offers value for styles in every department, and we’re excited to bring this experience to a new neighborhood.”

T.J. Maxx sells clothing, accessories, home and beauty products, and pet toys. Miner said the Danbury store will offer a “constant flow” of new products. T.J.Maxx has more than 1,200 stores in 49 states and Puerto Rico.

Plaza landlord David Hawley, a partner with The Hawley Cos. in Danbury, said the store will be a “great addition to the shopping center.”

The new store will be about 25,000 square feet. It is in the former location of Namco Pool, which has moved to a smaller space within the same plaza.

To mark the opening of the new store, T.J. Maxx announced it would donate to $10,000 to Catholic Charities of Connecticut during the grand-opening ceremony at 7:30 a.m. on Aug. 9. T.J. Maxx also supports programs such as Save the Children, Autism Speaks and Joslin Diabetes Center.

In addition to T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods, the Berkshire Shopping Center also has a Marshalls and Sierra Trading Post, both of which are TJX properties. TJX, which is based in Framingham, Mass., specializes in off-price retailing.

“We’ve developed a good relationship with them,” Hawley said. “Their stores do well there. To have all four of their stores in one plaza is a good draw. It creates traffic for them and for the other tenants in the plaza.”
