T.J. Maxx celebrated the grand opening of its new 22,000 square-foot Astoria location on Sunday.

The store is located at 22-06 31 St. at Ditmars Boulevard, part of a commercial development that has gone up in the past year that replaced a one-story building that was bulldozed in 2016.

T.J. Maxx offers its customers a variety of products from clothing and accessories to home, beauty and pet products. The store is one of more than 1,200 T.J. Maxx’s in the United States and the fifth Queens location, with others operating in Rego Park, Glendale, College Point, and Fresh Meadows.

The store held a ribbon cutting Sunday to mark the opening.

Officials presented a $10,000 check to Hour Children, a Long Island City-based non profit that helps the formerly incarcerated, as part of the opening.

“Our newest store in Astoria will offer an ever-changing selection of high-quality, on-trend and brand-name merchandise at the amazing prices T.J. Maxx is known for,” said Tim Miner, president of T.J.Maxx, in a statement. “We’re excited to bring this experience to a new neighborhood.”

The new location is open Monday to Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Its probably the worst store format of any TJ Maxx I’ve ever been to. For a new store you would think they would have at least tried to make it nice? The men’s dept is a joke, and the home section is meh.

Ys Ys Ys, there are no clothi g stores, here, yaaaaah!!! There’s no where to buy men’s clothing, and so on, you go astoria?


Take note LIC, this is called “retail”, something you clearly lack in your desert of soulless condos for the overabundance of folks thirsty to be back in Manhattan.


This building was already hideous looking. Then TJ Maxx’s brilliant designer decided that what it needed is not one, not two, but FOUR (4) glowing TJ Maxx signs on the front.

The down turn of a Astoria. Yes it will bring trouble here. These so called politicians were in an uproar before they took office when Red lobster was suppose to open up here. Where are they now on this issue?? big chain stores coming here?? Now I wonder why our favorite socialist politician has his mom’s home for sale.


Nice to know where all the trash from Steinway and beyond will be going to. Have fun Ditmars residents!


I’m happy there are new stores coming to the area. Steinway has recently been in commercial decline so this is good for Astoria.


Yes I’m hoping they are forward thinking and make Steinway outlets. That would be a big draw to the area!
