AJ Wright Stores to Close

Friday, December 10, 2010

 

TJX Corporation announced today that it would be closing the AJ Wright stores throughout the US. This will affect RI stores in Cranston and East Providence.

According to the announcement, the action will involve transforming 91 A.J. Wright stores into T.J. Maxx, Marshalls or HomeGoods stores and by closing the remaining 71 stores, A.J. Wright’s two distribution centers and its home office. This action is expected to improve the overall profitability of the Company, and will allow TJX to focus its managerial and financial resources.

Carol Meyrowitz, President and Chief Executive Officer of The TJX Companies, Inc., said in a release, “While I believe this move makes us a much stronger company and will benefit TJX in both the near-term and long-term, it was not an easy decision as many positions will be eliminated and it will be difficult for our affected Associates. As a Company, however, it will allow us to focus our financial and managerial resources on our highest return businesses, all of which have significant growth opportunities, as well as to significantly improve the economic prospects of our business. A critical factor in this decision is that, over the past two years, we have learned how to serve the A.J. Wright customer with our T.J. Maxx and Marshalls banners and have seen very strong performance from these stores in demographic markets similar to those in which we have A.J. Wright stores.
