I discovered TK Maxx a few years ago in London, the sister company to the US discount chain TJ Maxx. The US store, including their Home Goods store, has provided me with bargains in clothing and home over the years – but TK Maxx in London is even better!
The TK Maxx chain has expanded to Europe and hit it by storm! Don’t miss a stop here when you’re in London. With a completely separate management and buying group, they approach the European suppliers and designers for overstock bargains, giving them a level of quality you don’t see in TJ Maxx in the US. They hunt for unknown manufacturers in Italy, France, Germany – all over! And it makes a visit to the store an exciting stop.
The TK Maxx on High Street Kensington has 3 floors and is jammed with shoppers from all over Europe picking up bargains. Cadres of employees must work the floors to add more stock and organize the merchandise as buyers pick them over. Always great for a gift or a special bargain — from the classic soaps and lotions from France, Italy and England – you’ll find a huge selection of suitcases because you’ll need one when you finish shopping the designer clothing, scents, Italian silk scarves direct from the famous manufacturers in Italy, an enormous selection of leather handbags, designer sunglasses, foods and coffees and shoes – from Balenciaga and more.
Come along a little shopping trip we made recently to TK Maxx in Kensington!
If you’re shopping in the Covent Garden area (and you should be – it’s fabulous!), then you can check out the TK Maxx at 15-17 Long Acre. Lots of wonderful bargains to discover during your shopping adventures in London!
