If only you could sit back and relax on the couch and online shop one of your favorite retail chains: Marshalls. Well, the time has finally come when that desire has turned into reality!
Earlier this year, the TJX Company, that owns T.J. Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods, announced that Marshall’s would be launching an online shopping site. Prior to the announcement, T.J. Maxx had been the only one of the three to offer online shopping.
We all know the effort that goes into discount shopping. You need time, patience and perhaps a couple cups of coffee and some protein to power yourself through the endless aisles and racks. Stores like Marshalls are so popular because they offer major savings. So, to be able to take the driving, sifting through racks and shelves and shoulder nudging with other shoppers out of the equation is a BIG deal. Never mind the winding lines at checkout!
Prior to the launch, Marshalls.com was merely a website offering a store locator, a gift card buying page and other basic information.
In an official statement to People, Marshalls says: “We are excited to confirm that the surprising Marshalls shopping experience our customers love will be available to shoppers online sometime later this year. We expect Marshalls e-commerce site to offer a mix of merchandise that differs from what our customers will find in our stores. When we are ready to launch the site, we will let you know!”
“We have learned a lot from TJMaxx.com,” says CEO Ernie Herrman. “We really believe it drives incremental store traffic,” he said. “It is going to encourage cross-shopping.” TJMaxx.com launched in 2013, providing a different collection of items than its brick and mortars. The same will go for Marshalls.com.
Now live, shoppers can finally shop men’s and women’s apparel, decor, bedding and bath, kitchen and tabletop, office and storage, pet supplies and more, online.
