The TJX Companies, Incorporated, is the largest international apparel and home fashions off-price department store chain in the United States. Based in Framingham, Massachusetts, the company originally evolved from the Zayre discount department store chain, founded in 1956, which opened its first branch of T.J. Maxx in 1976 and its first BJ’s Wholesale Club in 1984. In 1988, Zayre sold their own nameplate to Ames, a rival discount department store chain, and the company renamed itself to The TJX Companies, Incorporated.
Since at least 2004, the company has been led by Chairman Bernard Cammarata, and the company’s headquarters has been located at 770 Cochituate Road in Framingham, Massachusetts.
