Edmond J. English, President and Chief Executive Officer of The TJX Companies, Inc., stated, “I am very pleased with the addition of Bob's Stores to the TJX family of companies, which represents another prospect for our Company's growth well into the future. With our excellent track record of starting and acquiring businesses, we believe Bob's Stores will be a significant long-term growth vehicle for TJX, with the potential over time of providing a multi-billion-dollar revenue stream and growing to be a chain of 400 stores in the U.S. While we see significant long-term potential with Bob's Stores, this acquisition is expected to have only a minimal impact on TJX's earnings per share over the next few years. We welcome Bob's Stores' management team and organization to TJX and look forward to working with them.”
