A combined T.J. Maxx and Home Goods store will open this summer in the long-vacant Linens 'n Things space at Deer Grove Centre in Palatine, according to commercial real estate firm CBRE Group Inc.
The retailer will lease the 50,000-square-foot space on Dundee Road for 10 years. The shopping center is anchored by a Target.
It's unclear what will happen to the existing T.J. Maxx store about a quarter-mile east at 1311 N. Rand Road. Doreen Thompson, VP of corporate communications for Framingham, Mass.-based TJX Cos. declined to comment on either the new store or the current store's future.
"Generally speaking, it is our practice not to announce store openings until close to an intended opening date," she said, citing competition reasons.
