image By now you all know that I love a good deal, so when I was given the opportunity mission to see what kind of deals I could find at TJ Maxx and Marshalls, I accepted! TJ Maxx and Marshalls are known for their name brand products at close out prices- but I wanted to know how they are able to offer such great deals, so I asked them!

How do you offer such a great price?

There are so many ways that we are able to offer low prices to our customers…The main way is our opportunistic buying model..That is what differentiates off-price retailers from the competition.  T.J. Maxx and Marshalls’ buyers are the ultimate treasure hunters – continuously searching the globe for amazing deals to bring back to their stores.  Here are a few ways we are able to pass savings along to our customers:

  • Size:  There is tremendous buying power behind two national chains. T.J. Maxx has over 880 stores in the US.  Marshalls has over 820 stores in the US and Puerto Rico.
  • Flexible “no walls” concept: Because not all stores carry the same merchandise, the buyers are able to buy either a large quantity to carry in all stores or only a few pieces to carry in select stores.  For example, if a vendor has enough fabric to produce 600,000 blouses, but a department store only ordered 500,000, off-price buyers will purchase the extra 100,000 blouses – at a significant discount – and carry them in part of the chain.
  • No sales ever: Off-price stores offer low prices every day, so the customer never has to wait for a sale.  Periodically, at the end of a season, any unsold merchandise will go on clearance, providing even further customer savings. 
  • Don’t pay for the display:  Another way the stores can keep prices low is by keeping their operating costs low. Rather than invest in expensive fixtures and fancy displays, off-price retailers focus on giving customers the best merchandise at a great price.”

Thanks to TJ Maxx and Marshalls I was give $100 to see what I could find. You can check out the HOT deals I found in my first ever Whrrl story (just click below):
