HomeGoods Shutting Down Tewksbury Store, Relocating

Store begins sell-off of stock.

an anchor of the Oakdale Mall, will be shutting down its Tewksbury location by the end of the month and relocating to Westford.

On Friday, shoppers were greeted with a huge sign announcing that the store was moving and a 25 percent off sale on all merchandise. HomeGoods specializes in home furnishings and decor.

Friday afternoon, company officials confirmed that the Tewksbury store at 1900 Main St. will be re-locating to Westford, alongside a new Marshalls. Both stores are owned by parent company TJX Companies.

According to Doreen Thompson, vice president, Corporate Communications for TJX, the Tewksbury location will close no later than Feb. 1.

"We expect the store to re-open as part of a Marshalls and HomeGoods combination store on March 21, 2013," said Thompson. "The new store will be located in the Cornerstone Square plaza in Westford, at the corner of Boston Road and Littleton Road."

Thompson did not give any indication that the Tewksbury HomeGoods was underperforming. Rather, she said the decision to relocate was part of a shift in corporate "real estate strategies."

"We are always assessing and reviewing our real estate strategies and our decision to relocate this store reflects that thinking," she said. "We are grateful for the patronage of our HomeGoods customers and believe they will continue to find great values in our new Westford location."

The Tewksbury Homegoods was extremely busy on Friday. Word of the closure began to trickle out through social media and local shoppers flocked to the store looking for bargains.

Another gem from you Bill ... get a grip ! Your in Somerville with trees and Andovers tax rate. Thank your past board of selectman J .S .for one, for putting the whole town on sewage when less than 25% needed to be. You live in a town full of beer drinking, smoking NASCAR fans , if you dont like them move !

TONY D: Why do you think Westford is a "much nicer Town"?

Rumor has it Aubuchon Hardware is moving there, can you confirm this Bill?

Not good. They've been serving the South end of town for many years while Tewksbury Hardware served the other. Home Depot didn't help business for either. Now, the folks in the South will have to travel to Oakdale; they may as well keep on driving to Home Depot.
