TK Maxx vs T.K. Maxx[edit]

Why TK Maxx without periods, whereas the T.J. Maxx article has periods? In the "TJX Companies, Incorporated" template, T.K. Maxx has periods, but the TK Maxx article title and the article itself don't. 86.152.203.212 06:59, 18 April 2007 (UTC) I don't know if this is the actual reason, but I think the use of fullstops ("periods" in the US) in acronyms and abbreviations is pretty much an American thing. I'm not saying it doesn't happen over here, but in my job for example, house style when writing to clients is always "Mr A B Citizen" rather than "Mr. A. B. Citizen". I know that USA, NBC, VP never take periods even in America, but there's a range of uses for periods that don't appear in Britain: apt., oz. 91.109.225.17 (talk) 21:57, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Blatant Promotion[edit]

"The company operated 771 stores at the end of 2004, and has further growth opportunities in the U.S. and abroad" "Every year, T.J. Maxx supports the Save the Children campaign as well as each store adopts a child to help support. In 2005, they raised over 1.25 million. Launched in 2000, “Happy Hearts” has raised over $4.3 million to support U.S. children and families in need" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 4.157.77.114 (talk) 06:03, 15 April 2008 (UTC) So what's surprising? TJ Maxx is all about blatant — Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.68.254.107 (talk) 17:13, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

is this company even alive anymore?[edit]

Ive been to a number of states lately and I cant find a single TJ Maxx anywhere. Murakumo-Elite (talk) 06:01, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Dude I work at one... We are alive and busier then EVER. (99% sure it's because of the recession.) (We do have prices lower than anyone.) SE KinG. User page. Talk. 01:42, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
Stores are experiencing double digit increases in sales from last year. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.206.104.181 (talkcontribs) 03:38, 25 June 2009

Heavily biased towards TK Maxx[edit]

It seems that this is heavily biased towards TK Maxx, with very little about TJ Maxx, even though TJ is the parent of TK. -- Hellmark (talk) 14:45, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

"T.J.Maxx" versus "T.J. Maxx"[edit]

I was on their website and I didn't see anywhere where "T.J. Maxx" was used (with the space). Should this article be renamed "T.J.Maxx"? Jesant13 (talk) 23:19, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Date confusion?[edit]

Article says, "In 2003, T.K. Maxx became locked in a dispute over its plans to open a store at Piccadilly Circus, London. It had signed an agreement in February 2009...", if the agreement was signed in 2009, how could the dispute start in 2003? It seems this section must be wrong from common sense point of view, but I don't know how to correct it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.150.129.146 (talk) 21:44, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
