There's a rumor being spread around town, online and elsewhere about the T.J. Maxx in Lawton, Fort Sill closing its doors permanently. It's been all over Facebook and other social media pages over the past few weeks. So is there any truth whatsoever to all these rumors? Are we about to lose T.J. Maxx on the westside?

After hearing this rumor repeatedly over the past week weeks I headed west to hopefully get an answer. The family and I do quite a bit of shopping at T.J. Maxx so for us it would be terrible if they decided to close it down. I spoke to several employees and floor managers at the store and they all said IT'S NOT TRUE AT ALL!

They too have heard the rumors about the Lawton T.J. Maxx closing. More than a few concerned customers have asked about it and luckily the rumors are all untrue. No one really knows why the rumor is out there being spread. If you see it on Facebook or someone tells you that T.J. Maxx is closing, tell them the truth.

With it being back to school time and everyone needing new supplies, clothes and shoes I'm glad to hear that our local T.J. Maxx is open and will remain open. Hard to believe that summer is almost over, for LPS (Lawton Public Schools) the first day back will be next Thursday, August 11th (08-11-22). Time to get ready!

You can bet I'll be doing some back-to-school shopping at our T.J. Maxx. If you've never been, or if it's been a while they're located on the westside at 1824 N.W. 82nd Street. They're open Monday through Saturday from 9:00-am until 9:30-pm and Sunday from 10:00-am to 8:00-pm. Visit the official website for all the details.
