A clothing store is moving into the former Big Lots on Durand Avenue next to the Piggly Wiggly.
Construction is underway on the future AJWright at 4101 Durand Ave. The company's website says the store will open in October.
AJWright is owned by the Massachusetts-based TJX Cos., which also operates hundreds of discount clothing and furnitures stores around the U.S., including TJ Maxx and Marshalls. There are 141 AJWright stores in the U.S.
TJX, worth a reported $19 billion, recently issued $400 million in bonds to be paid back in 2015.
TJX was also recently in the news for treating customers' private credit card information "like trash." Attorneys general from 41 states investigated the company and reached a settlement, though some are questioning how meaningful that settlement is.
