It isn’t hard to understand why people like shopping at discount stores like TJ Maxx.
With a wide range of brands and styles, lower prices than you’d find at major department stores and a pretty good website that makes ordering easy, TJ Maxx is a great option for those of us who want to look good for less.
Fortunately, it’s hardly the only game in town. In this post I’ll round up 25 other online stores like TJ Maxx where you can find stylish clothes, accessories and home decor that won’t break the bank.
What Are Stores Like TJ Maxx?
Rounding Up Some of the Most Stylish Stores Like TJ Maxx Online
Nordstrom Rack tops the list of stores like TJ Maxx because, as arguably their closest competitor, it follows a very similar business model.
Like TJ Maxx, Nordstrom Rack sells a wide range of stylish clothes and accessories, carrying many of the same brands that you can get at the flagship Nordstrom store, but for steeply discounted prices.
And speaking of close competitors, Saks Off Fifth is basically the Saks version of Nordstrom Rack or TJ Maxx.
It follows the same business model as Nordstrom Rack, offering a lot of the same brands as it carries at Saks Fifth Avenue, its upscale flagship store, but at prices that are much more more affordable for most of us.
Stop* me if you’ve heard this one before: Bloomingdale’s Outlet offers products, brands and styles similar to what you’d find at the chain’s flagship Bloomingdale’s store, but for significantly discounted prices.
*Just kidding, please don’t stop me. Because there’s at least one more of these still to come…
Unlike the stores above, Marshalls isn’t a TJ Maxx competitor so much as it’s just another version of the same store.
Marshall’s and TJ Maxx are both owned by the same parent company, and follow the exact same business model, meaning they carry a lot of the same brands and sometimes even the same products.
Sticking within the TJ Maxx family, Sierra is the third store in the trifecta of discount clothing stores all owned by the same parent company.
As with its sister stores Marshalls and TJ Maxx, it follows the same model, but it has more of a focus on activewear and outerwear than the other two, which are more fashion-focused.
Walmart is a pretty direct competitor to stores like TJ Maxx, though it follows a different business model.
Whereas all of the stores above tend to flip their inventory over quite quickly – meaning you have to pull the trigger right away when you find a piece you like – Walmart tends to keep things in stock for longer. When it comes to clothes, it’s also worth noting that Walmart doesn’t offer top-end brands at discounted prices, like the stores above all do.
Target is obviously a closer competitor to Walmart than to TJ Maxx, but it belongs on this list because it’s another great place to turn to if you’re looking for stylish and affordable staple pieces.
While it doesn’t offer top-shelf brand names, it does put a heavy emphasis on style, and carries its own in-house brands that are both on-point and affordable.
Speaking of in-house brands that are on-point and affordable, Amazon’s Goodthreads and Amazon Essentials brands have become absolute go-tos for anyone looking for sharp styles that won’t break the bank.
Of course, Amazon also carries pretty much everything else under the sun, and often at prices that you won’t find in other department stores or retail outlets.
eBay has lost a lot of ground in the e-commerce space over the years, but it’s still a great place to turn for discount clothes and stylish accessories.
While most of the products sold on eBay are brand new, it’s probably best known as an online auction site where you can buy gently used pieces at extremely affordable prices.
Also owned by Nordstrom, HauteLook is another branch of the company’s “off-price” division where you can find designer styles and brands for up to 70% off what you would pay in their flagship store or other comparable retailers.
Hautelook carries a pretty wide range of styles for both men and women, along with home decor, electronics, skincare, hair care and other grooming products.
Dillard’s Clearance Centers are more or less exactly what they sound like: outlets where you can find all the clearance items sold by the main Dillard’s department store.
Similar to Saks Off Fifth and Nordstrom Rack, Dillard’s Clearance Centers give you a chance to grab some of the same designer brands sold at the flagship store for significantly discounted prices.
British brand Asos is an affordable alternative to TJ Maxx that sells exclusively online.
While they’re best known for their in-house brand of stylish and affordable fashion, they’re similar to TJ Maxx in that they also carry a pretty good selection of items from other well known brands.
Shopping at Everlane has two distinct advantages. First, they sell some pretty awesome casual staples that are simultaneously stylish and timeless.
Second, their clothes don’t just make you look good, they make you feel good: they pride themselves on making clothes that make a positive impact on the world by only using ethical factories.
Another British brand, boohooMAN sells super fresh styles that are always on-point and on-trend.
With a wide range of pieces in everything from men’s suits to loungewear, it’s a great option for anyone looking for fashion that’s as up-to-the-minute “in” as possible.
Urban Outfitters is one of those stores like TJ Maxx that sells everything from clothes and shoes to home decor and furnishings.
It’s a go-to for hip young style aficionados who have their finger on the pulse of what’s in, and for good reason: their stuff is stylish, fresh and (relatively) affordable.
Romwe is a Europe-based online retailer that sells everything from men’s and women’s clothes to home decor, accessories and gadgets.
Romwe skews a little younger than some of the other stores like TJ Maxx on this list and specializes in trendy casual pieces that are fresh and on-point.
Shein is another online discount clothing store that has a pretty good inventory of casual staples, though they don’t sell quite as wide a range of clothes as TJ Maxx.
Their prices, however, are quite comparable, and Shein has also been known to run sales, meaning there’s even more opportunity to grab some stylish pieces at pretty low prices.
JackThreads sells a really wide range of affordable basics in modern styles, including everything from suiting down to socks.
While they offer a wide range, with JackThreads your best bet is stick with casual pieces like tees, sweaters and khakis. (For suiting you’d probably be better off going with TJ Maxx or Nordstrom Rack, where you can get some really high quality stuff for discount prices.)
Much like TJ Maxx, End is both a clothing store and a great place to turn for home decor stuff and other assorted gadgets.
They sell everything from fragrances and grooming products to electronics and tech, along with a collection of modern, sharp pieces from interesting designers and cool brands.
Asian brand YesStyle is an online store that sells damn near every kind of lifestyle product, from outdoor equipment and stationery to casual clothes, underwear and cosplay costumes.
While they ship all over the world, they specialize in giving you access to quality Asian brands you don’t usually find at other stores, like Cosrx, Mizon, Memebox, Some by Mi, innisfree, and more.
Wayfair is an alternative to TJ Maxx on the home furnishings and decor front, and it’s a great place to find affordable and stylish pieces for your apartment, condo or house.
Since they specialize in home stuff their offering is wider than TJ Maxx, but their website makes it easy to filter down to find the pieces and styles that best suit both your taste and your place.
Overstock is another good place to turn for affordable online furniture, offering a wide array of home decor stuff at some very reasonable prices.
One thing I like about Overstock is the ability to sort their website according to the style of decor that you’re going for; you can filter by things like Modern, Rustic or Industrial to find the pieces that suit your vision.
ThredUp is essentially the world’s best thrift shop/consignment store.
There mission is to “inspire a new generation of shoppers to think secondhand clothes first” by offering a wide range of like-new women’s and kids clothes from brands you know and love, at up to 90% off the estimated retail price.
While they only cater to women at the moment, the company is growing fast, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they start selling menswear in the not-too-distant future.
By this point you knew the drill. Not to be outdone by stores like TJ Maxx, Nordstrom Rack and the rest of their ilk, Neiman Marcus has gotten in on the action.
Their Neiman Marcus Last Call brands offers discounts on stock that didn’t sell at full price at their flagship stores, so it’s a great place to score a deal before they retire certain styles.
6pm is an online clothing store owned by Zappos, which itself is owned by Amazon.
They carry a pretty wide range of clothes, shoes and accessories, and offer some pretty great deals: you can often find pieces and brand names on 6pm selling for half of what you would pay at major retailers.
