HomeGoods and Marshalls open Thursday
The first HomeGoods and Marshalls stores in the metro area are scheduled to open in West Fargo on Thursday.
Marshalls is going into a space next door that was home to a Big Lots store and, before that, a Linens ‘n Things.
HomeGoods and Marshalls are both operated by Massachusetts-based TJX Companies, the parent company of T.J. Maxx.
A third new store, rue21, opened in late March in the Westgate Commons in a space it will share with HomeGoods. The corporate offices for rue21, a clothing store that aims for a youthful demographic, are in Pennsylvania. The West Fargo rue21 store has a special department for men called rueGuy.
Marshalls expected to hire about 70 people. HomeGoods is looking to hire about 35 people.
