FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Nov. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With 73 percent of people wishing they had more meaningful moments with loved ones during the holidays, T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods are again celebrating the values that make the season truly special by reintroducing "Bring Back the Holidays," a campaign that focuses on people, and creates opportunities to bring them together.
In the campaign, T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods imagine a world where the holidays are filled with magic instead of madness, and doorbusters refers to loved ones rushing through the door to give you hugs instead of shoves. With nearly 70 percent of people agreeing the holidays have become too commercial, it's clear they are yearning for that same joyous world as well.
This year, T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods have recruited the help of Cooking Channel host and Real Girl's Kitchen author, Haylie Duff, and lifestyle expert and author of 'Front Roe – How to be the Leading Lady in your Own Life,' Louise Roe, to inspire others to bring back the holidays. Both Haylie and Louise will take to Instagram and Twitter to share tips, content and experiences to help create and inspire the moments that make the holidays so special, and bring people together this holiday season.
"The Holidays are a really special time for my family and I. We use them as an opportunity to take time to ourselves, drop all distractions and focus on one another – whether it's making cookies with my daughter or sharing a special holiday meal with my family," said Haylie. "That's why I'm so excited to partner with T.J. Maxx, Marshalls and Home Goods to share our traditions and inspire others to do the same, so that they can create those priceless meaningful moments together."
To kick off the holiday campaign, all T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods stores have helped raise money for over 140 food banks across the country, with 100% of the dollars raised going back to food banks in local communities. With the help of generous customers and The TJX Foundation, we will donate nearly $2 million to help feed the hungry this holiday season.
Recognizing the importance of spending time with loved ones, all T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods stores will remain closed on Thanksgiving so that Associates can spend the holiday with their families.
"Our hope is to remind people what truly matters during the holidays. From snow ball fights to movie nights, it's those memorable moments that make the season so special," said Gina Bollus, spokesperson for T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods. "By offering thoughtful gifts at amazing prices every day, we encourage people to skip the sales, and shop on their own time so that they can focus on creating those precious moments with family and friends."
