TJX To Open First U.S. Homesense Store In August

TJX will open its first Homesense store in the United States with the first location planned for Framingham, MA.

The company said it is planning a total of four Homesense openings by the end of 2017.

According to the company, Homesense will offer a shopping experience that complements its sister chain, HomeGoods, with expanded departments such as large-scale furniture, lighting and art, as well as new departments like a general store.

While sharing the same name, the Homesense concept in the U.S. will differ from stores bearing the same name in Europe or Canada.

“Just as our customers enjoy shopping both TJ Maxx and Marshalls, we are confident that loyal customers and new shoppers alike will be excited about shopping both Homesense and HomeGoods,” said John Ricciuti, president of HomeGoods and Homesense in the U.S. “As the U.S. home market continues to grow, we are excited to bring consumers an expanded selection of quality merchandise at incredible prices, along with a new shopping experience in which they can discover and curate the home of their dreams.”

In addition to the broad selection of furniture and home decorative products, Homesense will also include an assortment of products for the holidays and other special occasions throughout the year. A “General Store” with all things organization, cleaning and home improvement will also be included.

The Framingham store will open on August 17. Additional locations will include stores in East Hanover, NJ; Ocean Township, NJ; and Westwood, MA.
