T.J. Maxx to open this fall in CapePosted Thursday, July 22, 2010, at 10:04 AM
The most common question I've been asked since becoming the business reporter at The Southeast Missourian has been, "Is T.J. Maxx really coming to Cape?"
After months of speculation and rumors, T.J. Maxx spokesperson Thea Houghton has just confirmed to me that her company recently signed a lease for a new store in Cape Girardeau that will open here this fall.
T.J. Maxx will be moving into the former Goody's Family Clothing location on Siemers Drive, which has been vacant for the past 14 months, said Mark Kohl manager of real estate and development with Drury Land Development.
Goody's occupied 28,000 square-feet in the shopping center owned by Drury Land Development.
T.J. Maxx has more than 800 stores nation-wide and is known for offering name-brand clothing, accessories and home decor at discount prices.
The company also is advertising online at CareerBuilder.com for a manager for its new Cape Store. http://www.careerbuilder.com/JobSeeker/J...
