T.J. Maxx bound for Lincoln

The city of Lincoln doesn't have a T.J. Maxx store. But it will on Sunday. The Framington, Mass.-based company, which touts itself as the nation's largest off-price retailer, will open for business in Lincoln Crossing.

(It will be the 11th store in what's considered the Sacramento market.)

At a whopping 30,000 square feet, the new T.J. Maxx will open its doors at 10 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. on opening day. Regular store hours will be 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays; 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.

I didn't realize it, but T.J. Maxx opened its first store 30 years ago! And, with the Lincoln opening, there will something called a "Maxx Moment." In a release from T.J. Maxx, spokeswoman Sonya Cosentini writes: "It's that minute of euphoria when a shopper finds that amazing piece of merchandise at an amazing price!"

Well, heck, bring on the bargains. And get this: Each week, the store will rake in more than 10,000 new items. So no stale merchandise.

* Also this weekend, Arden Hills Resort Club & Spa will be the setting for something called the Dockers Style Sessions, from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday. It's an opportunity to check out the new Dockers collection for women, receive mini-makeovers from a Sephora team of makeup artists, and get your fill of hors d'oeuvres.

Style expert Katie Rice Jones, who has appeared on the Style network and the TV Guide Channel, will be at the event, as well as experts from Glamour and Lucky magazines. There are one-on-one style appointments available, esspecially between 3 and 4 p.m.

To RSVP, e-mail

The event is free, so if you're up for a fashion-filled Saturday afternoon, check it out! The club is at 1220 Arden Hills Lane.

About Comments

Reader comments on are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
