TJ Maxx and Marshall's are making plans to launch e-commerce, according to StyleBistro which cites this WWD article. This is BIG news for us budget shoppers because until now, our favorite off-price retailers haven't had a presence in the online world. We've had to rely on bloggers to show us what's new (like myself!) in the brick-and-mortar stores.
On the one hand, online shopping will be a godsend for shoppers who don't live near a TJ Maxx or Marshalls - or who claim, as many of you do, that your local store isn't all that great! On the other hand, will the deals be as good? And what about the "thrill of the hunt"? I happen to enjoy the in-store experience because I don't mind getting hands-on and doing a little digging, and I feel like I'm competing with fewer fashionistas for those rare gems (and clearance items) that pop up unexpectedly at my store.
Are you excited at the prospect of being able to shop TJ Maxx and Marshalls online?
