Marshalls to open store in Caribbean’s largest mall
SAN JUAN – Leading U.S. discount retailer Marshalls, which has more than 1,000 locations in 47 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, will open a store on Feb. 22 in the Plaza Las Américas shopping center in San Juan.
On opening day, store hours will be from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Regular hours will then Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
“Marshalls is proud to welcome customers at its 21st store on the island. Shoppers visiting Marshalls in the San Juan area will find a surprising shopping experience on each visit as the store will offer a fantastic selection of brands, designers and high-quality fashion, home and beauty items at attractive prices,” Tim Miner, president of Marshalls and T.J. Maxx said in a written statement.
He added that, in the coming months, Marshalls and its sister retail chain, T.J. Maxx, the U.S.’s largest off-price retailer, locations on the island that were damaged during the hurricane are expected to reopen.
As these stores open their doors, Marshalls and T.J. Maxx will donate $100,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Puerto Rico to help rebuild homes on the island. Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit that helps build and repair homes for low-income families.
“Our location in Plaza Las Américas will offer an ever-changing selection of high-quality and fashionable items at the incredible prices for which Marshalls is known. With thousands of new items arriving daily at our stores, we hope to provide our customers with an amazing shopping experience on each visit,” Miner said.
“We understand and sympathize with the fact that our neighbors in this particular community have endured a difficult year and this is our way of reaffirming our dedication to our loyal clients and associates in Puerto Rico. We hope to continue the reconstruction together,” he added.
The store is expected to create some 60 full-time and part-time jobs.
