Marshalls shoppers in Philadelphia and Minneapolis will soon have to look for a new way to find discount savings as two of the retailer’s locations will close in the cities starting Jan.14.
The American mega-chain store is known as a place for fashion and home lovers to indulge in brand names for less and serves as the leading off-price retailer, with prices estimated to be 20-60% below full-price retailers.

Vice President for communications at TJX, Marshalls’ parent company Andrew Mastrangelo told BestLife, “We are always assessing and reviewing our real estate strategies, and our decision to close this store reflects that thinking.” He went on to say, “We are grateful for the loyalty of our Philadelphia customers and invite them to visit our nearby stores to continue to find great values, including the Marshalls on South Swanson Street and the T.J. Maxx on Market Street.”
The VP also empowered shoppers in Minneapolis to visit the Marshalls in Roseville and the T.J. Maxx in Saint Paul as a way to meet their shopping needs.

The brand assures its customers that the closures are not a part of a larger plan for more to come. According to the communications representative, the company’s CFO spoke about “anticipated store growth across all of TJX’s retail chains” in February last year, which has since been reflected in its earnings reports over the past year.
