Further, we see great growth opportunities in our brick-and-mortar business and are excited about the long-term potential of e-commerce as another avenue to bring our values to even more consumers. We remain confident that our strong top- and bottom-line growth will continue and we will grow TJX to be a $40 billion-plus company!”
