    Default TK AND TJ MAXX

    WHY IS THE COMPANY CALLED TJ MAXX IN THE USA AND TK MAXX IN EUROPE? WHAT DO THE INITIALS TJ AND TK STAND FOR?

    This is a reply i got

    Thank you for contacting T.J. Maxx Customer Service.

    While we would like to provide you with some kind of story or
    anecdote regarding the names, we can not. Thanks to a great
    Marketing team who liked the way T.J.Maxx sounded, the name
    stuck. As far as
    T.K. Maxx goes, they wanted a name that was similar to T.J.
    Maxx that people could identify with. However, because they are
    two separate chains, the names had to be slightly different.

    boring they could have at least made up some interesting story. TK stands for Too Kinky because their founder likes to wear womens under.

    Its beacuse there is a discount chain called TJ Hughes already and it would have been confusing.
