TJX Canadian Push: The TJX Cos. Inc. said Tuesday that it will open its first Marshalls store in Canada in the spring as part of a six-unit rollout in the country next year. Like TJX’s Winners, HomeSense and StyleSense nameplates, the Marshalls stores will be managed by the company’s TJX Canada group. Carol Meyrowitz, president and chief executive officer of Framingham, Mass.-based TJX, said TJX Canada provides the company “our highest financial returns” and estimated the country could ultimately support 90 to 100 Marshalls units. No specific locations for the Marshalls stores were disclosed. In the U.S., Marshalls is part of the Marmaxx Group and operates 819 off-price units in 42 states and Puerto Rico. TJX entered the Canadian market through its 1990 acquisition of Winners, which has 208 stores in Canada. Last year, TJX’s sales rose 6.8 percent to $20.29 billion.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
