T.J. Maxx to open Danville location on Sunday

DANVILLE — Shopping can start bright and early Sunday morning at the newest retailer to open on North Vermilion Street.

T.J. Maxx will have its grand opening ribbon-cutting at 7:30 a.m. Sunday, with the store opening for customers at 8 a.m.

The store will be open until 8 p.m. Sunday and start its regular hours on Monday of 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays.

Reusable bags will be given to the first 1,000 customers.

The Danville T.J. Maxx is located at 3689 N. Vermilion St., next to Kohl’s. The location is 24,000 square feet in size.

Last-minute details were being taken care of, such as with the dressing rooms and other areas.

The store has easy-to-see signage of its shopping areas. There also is a single line queue for faster checkout.

Store manager is Brock Price.

In celebration of its new Danville location, T.J. Maxx will contribute to the surrounding community by presenting a $5,000 donation to WorkSource Enterprises at the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The new store also will join all other stores nationwide in sponsoring a child who participates in Save the Children’s U.S. programs. T.J. Maxx also supports Autism Speaks and Joslin Diabetes Center with annual in-store fundraising campaigns.

Frank Brunacci, WorkSource Enterprises president and CEO, said the donation will help with programming and two or three persons with disabilities who benefit from WorkSource will be on hand for the grand opening.

“We’re honored to say the least,” Brunacci said. “They are a good partner.”

He said T.J. Maxx hires persons with disabilities and Meijer is great about it, too. It’s great to have them as neighbors, he said.

WorkSource is located at 3715 N. Vermilion St. Since 1971, WorkSource has provided work skills evaluation, in-house/on-site community job placement and programs that enhance and enable opportunities for persons with disabilities to independently live, work and enjoy life.
