For the 17 weeks ended May 27th 2006, sales reached $5.2 billion, a 7 percent increase over last year's $4.8 billion. Consolidated comparable store sales for the four-week period ended May 27th 2006, increased 4 percent over last year.

Ben Cammarata, Chairman and Acting CEO of TJX Companies Inc, stated, "Our consolidated comparable store sales increase in May of 4 percent was at the high end of our expectations. Our liquid inventory position allowed us to buy into market trends which, along with improved performance at several of our smaller divisions, helped drive comp sales. We continue to expect second quarter earnings per share in the range of $.24 - $.26."
