Consolidated comparable store sales for the five-week period ended July 5, 2008, increased 5% over last year. For the 22-week period ended July 5, 2008, consolidated comparable store sales increased 4% over last year.

Carol Meyrowitz, President and Chief Executive Officer of The TJX Companies Inc, stated, “We are pleased that our consolidated comparable store sales increase of 5% in June was well above our expectations. Through excellent execution of our resilient off-price business model, we achieved these results on top of two years of exceptional performance in June and despite the challenges of the highly promotional competitive environment.

We believe the favorable weather in most U.S. regions helped to boost demand for our fresh selection of summer apparel and great values. With strong sales and margins in May and June, and our favorable position as we enter July, we are raising our second quarter outlook for earnings per share from continuing operations to $.44 - $.45.”
