Marshalls will open a store in NorthTown Mall this winter

Clothing retailer Marshalls will move into the vacated NorthTown Mall location last used by the Nordstrom Rack.

A Spokane city building permit notes that Marshalls, a division of TJX Companies of Framingham, Mass., will remodel the 25,000-square-foot location and open this winter.

It will spend about $700,000 on the new project, according to the city permit.

TJX also owns and operates T.J. Maxx stores nationwide and across Canada.

This would be the first Marshall’s location in Spokane. Ten Marshalls stores operate in the Puget Sound area.

A Marshalls company brochure says it offers brand-name family apparel, home fashions and other merchandise including toys.

The company calls itself an “off-price retailer,” meaning its product prices fall below those of better-known brands.

TJX Companies’ investor information noted it’s opening more than 100 T.J. Maxx or Marshalls stores in the North America and Europe this year alone.  

The chart here, found at the TJX investor relations page, is a snapshot of the giant company's current store locations and a look ahead to where it sees future growth.  ENLARGE the graphic by double-clicking on it.

The top grouping is for the entire United States. That top bar includes the Marshalls stores and the far more numerous T.J. Maxx stores. The fifth bar is out of date; it shows no Marshalls stores in Canada, but the company has opened five or more there already. In fact, the Spokane store may well be part of the play to get more business with its fans in British Columbia.

The bottom line (literally) on this chart is the projection that TJX thinks it can add more than 4,000 new stores in the U.S., Canada and overseas. 

That's a lot of confidence…
