Popular T.J. Maxx Store in Minnesota Is Officially Closed

I know when I heard the news that a T.J. Maxx store was closing in Minnesota, my heart sunk a bit.  Jobs are gone, fans of the store have to go through their own closure, and there is the potential for another building to sit empty.  The last few years have been traumatizing for our economy and every empty storefront is just a reminder of what has been lost.

All of those thoughts went through my head when I heard that the T.J. Maxx at 1410 University Ave. West in St. Paul, Minnesota was planning to close around October 8th.
