“I am extremely pleased with our first quarter results, with overall open-only comp store sales up 16% and earnings per share of $.44, both well above our plan. I want to recognize the excellent work of our global Associates across the organization, especially our store and distribution center Associates who are physically coming into work to bring great values to our customers. Once again, we saw phenomenal performance in our home businesses across all of our divisions. We also saw strong open-only comp store sales increases in many other categories and positive open-only comp store sales in overall apparel, which we believe benefitted from consumers beginning to resume more normal activities. Our U.S. divisions delivered outstanding double-digit open-only comp store sales increases, and sales at our international divisions were very strong when their stores were permitted to be open. Clearly, our treasure-hunt shopping experience, eclectic mix of merchandise, and great brands and values continue to resonate with shoppers across our geographies. As we start the second quarter, overall open-only comp store sales trends remain similar to the first quarter. While the environment remains uncertain, particularly internationally, we are convinced we are strongly positioned as we emerge from this health crisis. Looking ahead, we see numerous opportunities to capture additional market share around the world and are excited about the runway for growth we see for TJX,” said Ernie Herrman, Chief Executive Officer and President at TJX Companies, Inc.
