INSIDE LOOK: Check out this sneak peek of the HomeGoods spinoff store


The newest cheap home decor chain has arrived in the United States.

The parent company of T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods has launched a new home store concept called Homesense. Parent company TJX Cos. announced in March that it would open a new discount chain selling home decor items. The chain already has locations in Canada and Europe.

The stores will offer furniture, art, sodas, chairs, pool tables, lighting and other home decor items. Homesense also carries items like cleaning essentials, home improvement items, hardware items and storage supplies. The first store will open this summer in Massachusetts and more locations are set to open this year in New Jersey.

“Just as our customers enjoy shopping both TJ Maxx and Marshalls, we are confident that loyal customers and new shoppers alike will be excited about shopping both Homesense and HomeGoods,” said HomeGoods and Homesense president John Ricciuti, in a statement. “We are excited to bring consumers an expanded selection of quality merchandise at incredible prices, along with a new shopping experience in which they can discover and curate the home of their dreams.”
