I would be lying if I said I didn’t look forward to a good late-night shopping sesh or spend my week dreaming of browsing store shelves on the weekend. There’s something about those shiny new shoes, or the lure of picking up a bargain that gets the blood pumping! So when we were invited to explore the new TK Maxx retail store at the Homemaker Centre in Fortitude Valley, I was pretty quick to reply with a ‘yes please!!’.
TK Maxx is an off-price retailer that sells a huge assortment of big names, top brands, up-and-coming labels, high quality fashion and one-off gems at a great discount to the price in a department store or on the high street. But what the heck is ‘off-price’… so it turns out that TK Maxx has a network of thousands of buyers out scouring for awesome finds for their retail network. Because of their buying power they often secure big brand (even designer!) labels for a fraction of the price. And while they get thousands of products hit the shelves every week, the catch is you never know the brands, sizes or volume of stock that they will get… and so the treasure hunt begins!!
TK Maxx is merchandised in a way I haven’t seen before, for example, in the fashion section, rather than look at one style in all sizes.. You can go straight to tops, your size and there’s all of their available stock, so as soon as something catches your eye you can grab it and run!
Inside the TK Maxx store they had women’s and men’s fashion and accessories, homewares, activewear, beauty, electronics, luggage and kitchenware – so there is absolutely something there for just about anything you need!
So what did I pick up on my shopping treasure hunt? I snapped up 3 pieces of activewear – ¾ leggings, a crop top and a singlet. Now I’m normally a lulu or LJ shopper for my activewear, where three items can cost in excess of $250!! I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY to find these three on-trend pieces came to a grand total of $65. Three big brands, three pieces, for $65… and they weren’t even on sale!
To say that I’ll be back shopping at TK Maxx soon is definitely an understatement. Check them out for yourself to find BIG brands at UNBELIEVABLE prices!
