From the end of May and in nearly 170 stores, TK Maxx will be offering its largest ever golf selection with famous name golf brands at up to 60% less than the recommended retail price.
TK Maxx has implemented a unique “off price” concept since 1994 when the first store opened in Bristol. ‘Off-price‘ is a concept imported from the United States and tailored for the UK market. ‘Off-price‘ shopping offers a mix of predominately current season designer and high street items all at up to 60% off the recommended retail price.
The stores offer a no frills operation. Each store has over 50,000 items in stock at any one time and with 10,000 new pieces, styles and colours arriving every week to each store the choice is unsurpassed. Another 20 stores are planned for 2005.
The expanded golf offer includes traditional and contemporary brands across men’s and women’s apparel and a wide variety of equipment including clubs, bags, balls and tees.
The deals include men’s polo’s from just £16.99 versus a recommended retail price of £40 and men’s rainwear from only £39.99 compared to a rrp of £200. As with the men’s offer, women will find an extensive range of outerwear, rainwear, polo’s and knitwear.
