T.J. Maxx Coming to Southbury

Will fill spot that was once used by Borders books.

, a favorite among discount shoppers, will be filling the vacant Borders building in the Southbury Plaza.

Southhaven Associates, LLC, owners of the Southbury Plaza, made the announcement this week.

 T.J. Maxx, which is owned by TJX Companies, will fill about 22,000 square feet of space.

Work will start immediately and the store is expected to open in early spring, according to a Southhaven Associates press release.

T.J. Maxx sells brand name clothes, women's shoes and home goods at discounted prices, and it runs about 890 stores in 48 states.

“We are excited about bringing T.J. Maxx to Southbury Plaza,” said Southhaven executive, Christopher Gatto. “The opening of T.J. Maxx will create an additional retail opportunity for area shoppers, and the new store will also fit nicely within our existing tenant mix,” he said. “We take great pride in our center and we strive to seek out tenants that will add value to our center, and to the local community.”

T.J. Maxx is the most recent of several additions to the shopping center. Premier Wine and Spirits opened a new store in October and opened earlier this month.

The Southbury Shopping Plaza is at the intersection of Main Street North and Main Street South.  Other tenants include , Kmart, , Radio Shack, and AT&T.

LOL - Bill Davis stated this back in September and he was called a liar. Patch says it and voila! it's true. No doubt this will go down in history (revised) as an Edelson accomplishment.

Well I guess MaryAnn got coal in her stocking because she is still a negative blogger. Like the saying goes if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all. Here's hoping you find good cheer and happiness in the New Year. Spread the positive cheer =^).

MaryAnn, still got your head up your butt I see. Even the plaza owners denied it then because it was inappropriate at that time to release any details. The idiot you supported made a premature announcement that even po'd the plaza owners. And he lost why? God protect us from this continued ignorance.

Inappropriate? You and I know that it was not a lie. What I find amusing (actually scary) is that Ed hired one of his campaign aides as a "part-time" technology staffer. Waste ye no time padding the payroll! Can't recall if it was ye who complained of the family and friends plan.

MaryAnn. Every one in the town land use departments knew back in April that negotiations were ongoing between the Plaza management and TJ Maxx. The difference is that the employees kept the confidential information confidential and your buffoon released it when he saw he was losing a debate. It was not only inappropriate for Davis to release confidential info for political purposes, it could have resulted in the Plaza suing the town for his breach of confidentiality and ethics. This is the reason why many employees would not tell the former first selectman any information, he wasn't bright enough to keep his mouth shut. Did you notice that the Plaza released the info in their own news release and didn't involve the town leadership or EDC???? It's never a bright move to throw one of your top 5 taxpayers under the bus! As for Ed hiring an extremely qualified staffer who he is NOT related to, unlike the wife and sister in law of the former buffoon who wouldn't be granted an interview if they applied for jobs similar to theirs elsewhere, you are absolutely wrong and missed the point: The administrative assistant position is a POLITICAL APPOINTMENT budgeted at 35 hours a week. Mrs. Hubert will work 28 hours a week and Ms. Liedlich will work the other 7. No increase or padding of the payroll, neither one gets the benefits the former glorified secretary received. We are actually saving money! Time for your rectal craniotomy!

JS - with a name like that, the question comes to mind just who the moron is. Also, two does not a bunch make. Moron.

A little off subject question... which snow plow contractor raised his fee from $95 to $125 an hour, because they were upset of the bidding policy?
