Wright stores not closed in Q4 FY11, the costs related to the conversion of the former A.J. Wright stores to other TJX banners and the costs related to grand re-opening events when the stores re-opened. The Marmaxx and HomeGoods segments reflect costs related to store conversions and grand re-openings.
