There are about 16,000 vendors around the world, mainly manufacturers and other retailers. TJX purchases “less-than-full” assortment items, of quantity from small to large, and in different styles and sizes. TJX pays vendors promptly and therefore has no need for any retail concessions like promotion or mark-down allowances, or delivery concessions like discount on shipment cost, or reliance on a “return policy” discount. When appropriate, TJX will purchase inventory to sell at a future time, in spite of its usual policy of adhering to a lean and rapid turnover of inventory.

The next point in the supply chain is warehousing where inventory is collected, sorted, and processed for distribution. Thus, the various distribution centers can be viewed as TJX production facilities. Although many of TJX retail outlets are leased, many of its distribution centers are owned and located near, or as part of, corporate offices in order to facilitate the centrally controlled decisions on pricing, mark-downs, and inventory replenishment.

In the United States, TJX distribution centers are located in Massachusetts, Indiana, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Arizona. In Canada, they are located in Ontario, and in Europe, they are located in England, Germany, and Poland.

Marketing

The one key success factor for TJX is pricing, as in offering merchandise at least 20 to 60 percent off the prices charged by major retail and specialty department stores. TJX claims it serves a wide spectrum of customers with annual household income from $50,000 to millions of dollars. Given their business model, one area where TJX does save is in advertising and customer service. Customers are encouraged to explore in a “treasure hunt” in its stores, where no walls separate the different departments. Customers roam freely about the open-spaced layout without staff “hovering around,” yet the customers are able to seek assistance from such staff when needed. TJX has a generous return policy. It encourages customers to apply for and obtain a TJX credit card.
