Major European retail and fashion chain TK Maxx to open two Wollongong stores

A big name European retail chain is opening two new Australian stores in Wollongong in 2017. TK Maxx will open at Warrawong Plaza on May 4 and is planning a second store in Wollongong later in the year.

The outlet with more than 500 stores in Europe is famous for offering big brands at small prices and is presently rolling out stores across Australia. The new store in Warrawong will sell a huge assortment of big names, top brands, up-and-coming labels, high quality fashion and one-off gems at a discount.

TK Maxx spokesperson Tessa Buenan said the store will be located in the former Trade Secret store site and will will stock everything from designer handbags, to the latest on-trend fashion for women, men and kids, toys, luggage, cosmetics and shoes, plus an eclectic mix of branded, quality home wares for every room. “We are so thrilled to bring TK Maxx to shoppers in Warrawong. Australians love value, it’s something we know customers are looking for every time they shop,” Ms Buenan said.

“Our Warrawong customers will discover an incredible selection of brands at exceptional values on offer throughout the entire store!”.

An opening day celebration is planned from 9am on Thursday May 4 when the first 1,000 shoppers to arrive in store will receive a TK Maxx tote bag to remember the retailers arrival in Australia.

Ms Buenan said TK Maxx was an off-price retailer, selling brands from thousands of vendors in Australia and around the world at great value.

“The stock changes rapidly, creating an exciting treasure hunt shopping experience,” she said,

Ms Buenan said TK Maxx was able to offer great value in the Illawarra.

“One of things that makes TKMaxx different from other retailers in Australia is the way we buy merchandise,” she said.

“We buy throughout the year, rather than seasonally, and close to need. So when a designer overproduces or other stores overbuy, we swoop in, negotiate the lowest possible price, and pass the savings on”

Ms Buenan said the new TK Maxx Warrawong store would receive a number of deliveries with thousands of new items arriving on the shop floor each week.

She said that meant the stock was consistently fresh and there were always news something new to discover.

“We look forward to welcoming the local community to share in the celebrations on our special opening day,” she said.

TK Maxx Warrawong is one of 35 Trade Secret stores being converted and re-opened throughout April and May.

More stores are planned for later in the year but Warrawong will be among the first in Australia.

A second store is planned for Wollongong later in the year.
