MIAMI, FL - FEBRUARY 08: The entrance to a T.J. Maxx store is seen on February 8, 2017 in Miami, Florida. T.J. Maxx and Marshalls stores have reportedly been told by the retailers' parent company, The TJX Campanies, that they should not feature Ivanka Trump's merchandise and to discard signs advertising those products.

TJX, the parent company of local retail favorites T.J. Maxx, HomeGoods and Marshalls, is temporarily closing its stores “to do our part to help prevent the further spread of this virus.”

The link to this message from Ernie Herrman, the Chief Executive Officer & President of TJX, was posted on the TJX website and states that they will be “temporarily closing all stores globally as of today for the next two weeks in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia.”

“The Company is also temporarily closing its online businesses, and during this time, as well as its distribution and fulfillment centers and offices, with Associates working remotely when they can.”

I love this part of the message the best… “This pandemic has affected everyone’s lives, including those of our Associates and customers. We know our Associates are very concerned for their health and financial well-being and we plan to pay our store, distribution and office Associates for two weeks during these closures.”

I already love to shop at T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods, but the fact that they will be paying their employees while their stores are closed during this crisis makes me want to shop there even more when it’s safe to get back out there and do so!
