National discount fashion retailer to replace Borders Books and Music.
Maxxinistas: start your engines! T.J. Maxx is coming to Midtown.
The discount fashion retailer is opening a 23,000-square-foot store inside the Midtown Place shopping center, at 650 Ponce de Leon Avenue, according to a permit filed with City of Atlanta Wednesday.
The store will occupy the site where Borders Books and Music had been located before its parent company filed for bankruptcy and it shuttered.
T.J. Maxx will spend at least $650,000 for a commercial renovation to the space, the permit notes.
The store sells discounted merchandise, including women’s clothes and shoes, accessories, men’s and children’s wear, bed and bath products and other household goods.
Carrie Garfield, media relations supervisor for The TJX Companies, Inc., told What Now Atlanta in an email, “I don’t have any additional information for you yet.”
