SOUTH LOOP — Fans of the South Loop T.J. Maxx better get their shopping in while they can: The location will be closing after the holidays, a spokesperson confirmed Monday.

The store, 1008 S. Canal St., is set to close by Jan. 6. The shop is one of several in The Maxwell, a collection of retail stores that include Dick’s Sporting Goods, Nordstrom and Burlington.

The discount clothing retailer announced last week it would close a Brooklyn, New York store in early 2024. Earlier this month, the company closed a location in St. Paul, Minnesota. There are more than 1,300 T.J. Maxx stores nationwide, according to an August earnings press release.

“We are always assessing and reviewing our real estate strategies, and our decision to close this store reflects that thinking. We are grateful for the loyalty of our Chicago customers and invite them to visit our nearby stores to continue to find great values,” said T.J. Maxx spokesperson Monica Crocetti.

The retailer was one one of the first tenants of The Maxwell when it opened in June 2014. There are six remaining T.J. Maxx locations within the city limits.
