Department store chain T.J. Maxx announced the new Potomac Yard Center location (3875 Richmond Highway) will open tomorrow (Thursday).

The new location is opening in part of the old Shoppers Food Warehouse in Potomac Yard, relocating from the nearby 3451 Richmond Highway.

Shoppers closed in 2020 and the location was expected to transform into an Amazon Fresh, but when those plans were scrapped, T.J. Maxx swooped in.

The regular store hours will be 9 a.m.-10 p.m., though it will open an hour earlier at 8 a.m. tomorrow. The new location is approximately 30,300 square feet.

“Our newest store in Alexandria will offer an ever-changing selection of high-quality, on-trend and brand-name merchandise at the amazing prices T.J.Maxx is known for,” T.J. Maxx President Peter Benjamin said in a release. “With a constant flow of new arrivals, we offer an exciting one-stop-shop that makes it easy for consumers to stay on-trend with styles they love and save big every single day.”
