BURLINGTON TWP. — HomeGoods will join an existing Marshalls to create a combination store in Liberty Square Shopping Center, bringing 15 new jobs later this month.
The two stores issued a joint news release announcing a June 28 grand re-opening. Marshalls has remained open during the interior modification.
Following the remodel, the combo store will have a common entrance with two distinct store environments on either side of the 36,275-square-foot building, allowing customers the convenience of shopping both stores. The two retailers are owned by the same company.
HomeGoods spokeswoman Lisa Zahn said 15 additional full-and part-time positions will be filled with the arrival of HomeGoods.
ob applications for sales and other positions are available inside what is now Marshalls.
"We are so happy that we are able to add a HomeGoods to offer the Burlington community the latest home trends at a great value," said Zahn.
"The new Marshalls and HomeGoods combo store will offer one-stop shopping for top-quality designer fashion, plus distinctive home fashions at incredible prices."
The Burlington site is one of first four combination stores that will open with the next month, Zahn added.
The others are in Dallas; Encino, California and Chicopee, Massachusetts.
The HomeGoods name already has been added to the Marshalls sign in the shopping center at 2200 Mount Holly Road.
Zahn said both brands will continue to carry the usual merchandise and inventory.
Marshalls carries designer and brand names in ladies’ fashion, shoes, accessories, men’s apparel, juniors, kids’ apparel and accessories, luggage and beauty products, and has new items arriving every week, as does HomeGoods.
HomeGoods advertises discounted home interior products, including furnishings, gourmet kitchen and dining items, linens, outdoor living, pet accessories, storage containers and more.
TJX Companies Inc. owns both Marshalls and HomeGoods as well as TJ Maxx, Sierra Trading Post and Homesense. TJX calls itself the leading off-price retailer of apparel and home fashions in the U.S. and worldwide.
The combo store is in the same shopping center as Walmart, sandwiched between two large vacant stores formerly occupied by an Acme Market and a recently closed Toys R Us.
Walt Corter, Burlington Township administrator, said he is glad to see the addition of Home Goods because it offers more merchandise to attract residents and other customers.
