Carol Meyrowitz, President and Chief Executive Officer of The TJX Companies, Inc., stated, “In 2009, one of the worst economic periods that the U.S., Canada, and Europe have seen, TJX generated superior earnings growth, with every division delivering top- and bottom-line results well above plan. Sales growth was driven by a large increase in transactions as we attracted new customers from all income levels with our compelling values. We aggressively managed our inventories which, combined with cost reduction programs, helped fuel strong increases in profitability. Additionally, we took advantage of opportunities the environment presented, opening more new stores than planned and thousands of new vendor doors. We enter 2010 very confident in our future, with a continued focus on driving sales and reducing inventory levels and costs. We believe value will remain key for consumers and are making significant investments in our stores to enhance the shopping experience for our customers. Our core businesses and growth vehicles are performing well, and we have enormous store growth potential. We begin a new year with tremendous momentum and great confidence in our ability to continue to grow our business profitably in the future.”
