Is North Texas Getting A HomeSense Store?

The company behind retailers HomeGoods, Marshalls, and T.J. Maxx may have even more in the works for North Texas.

A filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation called “TJX Companies – HomeSense – Allen, TX” shows that renovations and alterations could get underway in July for a building.

TJX Companies’ HomeSense brand offers products such as rugs, furniture, lighting, art, kitchenware, decorative pillows, faux flowers, organizers, and supplies. While TJX Companies has HomeSense stores in 12 states, the retailer’s website does not list Texas among them.

The TDLR filing shows an estimated $1.9 million in construction costs could be spent on the alterations in the works at the 31,319-square-foot building, located at 170 E. Stacy Road in Allen. The building appears to have once been a Havertys furniture store.

The construction of the project, with Rogue Architects listed as the design firm, could be completed by January 2025, the filing indicates.

A TJX Companies spokesperson did not return a message seeking comment about the project and whether it means a HomeSense location is in the plans for Dallas-Fort Worth.

TJX Companies specializes as a global off-price retailer of apparel and home fashions with more than 4,800 stores. The company employs 329,000 associates in nine countries and is ranked 87th on the Fortune 500 list.

TJX Companies, which is based in Framingham, Massachusetts, also owns Sierra, Winners, and T.K. Maxx. The company was founded in 1976, when Ben Cammarata was recruited by discount retailer Zayre Corp. to develop and oversee the launch of a new off-price chain that sells family apparel and home fashions, according to its website.

The following year, the first T.J. Maxx stores opened, and by the late 1980s, Zayre was restructured and evolved into three brands — T.J. Maxx, Hit or Miss, and Chadwick’s of Boston. Those retail banners eventually became TJX Companies.
