As such, the TJX Businesses do not warrant, represent or assume any responsibility or liability for the accuracy, completeness or operation of any linked site (or any site contained in a linked site), or the practices or privacy and other policies contained in any linked site (or any site contained in a linked site). You should familiarize yourself, therefore, with the specific legal, privacy and security information contained in any such websites.
Our Website also contains links to other sites operated by the TJX Businesses. We advise you to review the legal, privacy and security information for each such site to which you link, as the terms and conditions of use and the policies relating to the personal information you provide may vary from website to website. Linking to This Website
Establishing or maintaining a link from another website to this Website without the prior express written consent of TJX is strictly prohibited. Displaying this Website or any Content contained on this Website in frames or through similar means on any website without TJX's express written permission is also strictly prohibited. Any permitted links must comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
We make all reasonable efforts to provide information on this Website that is accurate and complete; however, pricing and typographical errors may occur or information may be out of date. There may be information, including information about products, their availability, or their prices that may be inaccurate or incomplete. We regret any inconvenience to you.
Our customers continue to be our top priority. If you're not satisfied with your purchase, return the merchandise accompanied by a register receipt within 30 days of purchase, for an exchange or refund. A 10 day period is required for a cash refund on check purchases. Returns with receipts over 30 days or without a receipt will receive store credit only. Gift receipts are valid for store credit or exchange of merchandise only.
Merchandise that is used, worn or in unsellable condition will not be accepted for refund, store credit or exchange. Returns of swimwear and intimate apparel require tickets properly attached to the merchandise. Other restrictions may apply.
Unfortunately, many retailers are subject to fraudulent return activity. Returns may also be limited or declined based upon our refund verification systems, which are used to process and track returns to help administer our loss prevention program.
Valid ID (drivers license, military ID, state issued photo ID card), name, address and signature are required for returns without a valid receipt or gift receipt. Customer signature may be required for returns (receipted and unreceipted). To learn about how we use and handle your information, please see our Privacy Notice. To make your returns quicker and easier please keep your receipt.
We have tried to display the products and attributes of the products on the Website, including the colors of products accurately. Because the colors you see depend on your computer monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any color will be accurate.
"Compare At" Price
The "compare at" price is our buying staff's estimate of the regular, retail price at which a comparable item in finer catalogs, specialty or department stores may have been sold. We buy products from thousands of vendors worldwide, so the item may not be offered by other retailers at the "compare at" price at any particular time or location. We encourage you to do your own comparison shopping as another way to see what great value we offer. We stand for bringing you and your family exceptional value every day – it's the foundation of our business.

All Gift Cards and other gift certificates are deemed purchased in and issued from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
