Go Nuts! T.J. Maxx Opens Its 1,000th Store In D.C. Today

Yesterday, we were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the new T.J. Maxx store downtown, and we're not gonna lie — we kinda lost our minds for a minute. The store officially opened this morning at 8 a.m., and while we don't suggest making tracks down there on opening day (madhouse alert!), you'll definitely want to make this a regular stop on your shopping agenda. The massive store is packed with great stuff, from $5K Ralph Lauren Purple Label gowns and bejeweled Prada tanks to cases of glittering jewelry and an expertly edited shoe section.
The somewhat-hidden store (the entrance is around the corner from Banana Republic, on F Street) is the company's 1,000th flagship, and the brand's new marketing direction — focusing more on current trends and high-end fashion, less on the discount component — is clearly at work here. We spotted super on-trend pieces, like a French Connection short lace dress and tribal-inspired wedges, plus plenty of practical shifts and pumps for work and the weekend. And truth be told, the prices are some of the best we've seen recently — when was the last time you saw Nine West heeled sandals for $35? So, may we recommend a long lunch sometime this week? (Or today, if you're feeling brave...)
Where: 601 13th Street NW (entrance on F Street NW); 202-637-1261.
