FRAMINGHAM – T.J. Maxx CEO Ernie Herrman told investors yesterday, November 18, the retailer wants to launch an e-commerce platform for HomeGoods in 2021. HomeGoods is the home furnishings store of the TJX Companies.
TJX Companies has its world-wide headquarters in Framingham.
“To both leverage our strength in the home category and capitalize on our market share growth opportunities, we are pleased to share that we plan to rollout e-commerce on HomeGoods.com later next year,” said Herrman.
Herrman said the online store would “satisfy our customer base and attract new shoppers.”
Herrman said customers have been reluctant to return to bricks-and-mortar stores, during the coronavirus pandemic.
The CEO said he expected that trend to continue through the important holiday season.
TJX has more than 4,000 T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods and other TJX brand stores open, and about 400 stores closed, due to the pandemic.
TJX operates a HomeGoods store at the plaza at 400 Cochituate Road (Route 30).
