The TJX Companies, Inc. Reports February 2013 Sales

The TJX Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TJX) today reported February 2013 sales results. Sales for the four-week period ended March 2, 2013, were $1.8 billion, up 7% over the $1.6 billion achieved during the four-week period ended February 25, 2012. Consolidated comparable store sales for the four-week period ended March 2, 2013, were up 1%.

Carol Meyrowitz, Chief Executive Officer of The TJX Companies, Inc., stated, “Business trends picked up at the very end of the month, leading to our February comp store sales coming in higher than expected at a 1% increase. Winter storms in many U.S. and Canadian regions kept customers at home, but we were pleased to see our momentum continue in warmer weather markets. Further, our home businesses, which are less weather sensitive, were strong across the board. We are also happy with the continued strength of our European businesses. As we move through the spring selling season, we are in an excellent position to continue shipping great brands and fresh fashions to our stores at extreme values.”

Discontinuing Monthly Sales Reporting

The Company recently announced that beginning with the Fiscal 2014 second quarter, it will no longer report monthly sales, consistent with the retail industry trend. The Company will continue its current practices through the end of the Fiscal 2014 first quarter, reporting sales for March and April, and move to a quarterly reporting schedule thereafter. The Company believes that this is the right practice for TJX and its shareholders, reflecting the long-term approach it takes in planning and running its business.
