Marshalls finally marks its online presence with its new online store

Online retail and fashion stores have shown an exponential amount of growth in the past few years. Online sites eliminate the need for a brick and motor store, saving a huge amount of money which companies can redirect towards their marketing efforts through initiatives such as discounts, offers and other promotional activities.

Influenced by these perks, Marshalls, department store company, has reportedly also decided to start its first online store, which would feature heavy discounts on various brands like Fendi and Gucci among others. The site is already live and open for business.

commenting on the launch, Mark DeOliveira, Executive Vice President, TJX Digital US, stated that the website will present an exceptional assortment of values and brands that Marshalls is renowned for, while offering its user the option to shop from interactive curations and features.

Reportedly, TJX Companies owns the off-price retailer and currently intends to expand its market with the help of online stores, replicating its previous success with Sierra, a division of TJX companies.

Moreover, the site will feature the same categories which it features in its 100-plus stores such as men’s, kids and lady’s footwear and apparel, accessories, beauty and house decorations.

Prior to this news, Marshalls made some significant ripples when it announced that it will be opening a store in Venice’s Jacaranda Plaza.

The off-price retailer which has over 1,000 stores in places like Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., revealed that the Venice store will approximately be spread over 20,000 square feet and will be open for business from 9:30 am to 9:30 pm, Monday through Saturday. Moreover, the new store would create approximately 60 full and part-time jobs in the area.

Coming back to the online store, the company plans to ease its customer’s hassle by allowing them to return most of their online merchandise to its authorized stores or can just mail it back.

However, numerous designer items from brands like Fendi and Christian Louboutin do not adhere to the return policy, with the brands noting that its products are not returnable in store.
