Carol Meyrowitz, Chief Executive Officer of The TJX Companies, Inc., stated, “I am very proud of our results in 2010 as consolidated comparable store sales increased 4% on top of a 6% increase last year and our bottom line grew substantially over extraordinary growth in the prior year. I am even prouder of our Company's ability to grow our revenues and earnings year after year, through economic downturns and upturns. This speaks to the extraordinary flexibility of our off-price business model and our ability to successfully utilize that flexibility to our advantage. Providing great value to our customers on fabulous brands and fashions is our mission and we focus each day on the best ways of delivering that value. Our comparable store sales increases continue to be driven by customer traffic, which indicates to us that value remains top-of-mind for consumers. We are running our business with lean, fast-turning inventories, which in 2010, again led to even stronger merchandise margins. This, combined with our continued cost reduction initiatives, helped drive large increases in profitability. We see a great deal of further opportunity in all of these areas and others to drive sales and profits in 2011 and beyond.”
