Thursday, March 7, 2013 
Framingham, MA - The TJX Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TJX) today
reported February 2013 sales results. Sales for the four-week
period ended March 2, 2013, were $1.8 billion, up 7% over the
$1.6 billion achieved during the four-week period ended February
25, 2012. Consolidated comparable store sales for the four-week
period ended March 2, 2013, were up 1%. 
Carol Meyrowitz, Chief Executive Officer of The TJX Companies,
Inc., stated, “Business trends picked up at the very end of the
month, leading to our February comp store sales coming in higher
than expected at a 1% increase. Winter storms in many U.S. and
Canadian regions kept customers at home, but we were pleased to
see our momentum continue in warmer weather markets. Further,
our home businesses, which are less weather
sensitive, were strong across the board. We are also happy with
the continued strength of our European businesses.
As we move through the spring selling season, we are in an
excellent position to continue shipping great brands
and fresh fashions to our stores at extreme values.”
