- Always shop in the morning
In one of her “TK Maxx secrets” videos, Hannah claims the shops usually restock in the morning, so it’s best to arrive as early as possible if you’re looking for the newest items.
She said: “TK Maxx get deliveries every day apart from a Sunday and it’s usually in the morning.
“Usually they’ll have staff that start work at 6 and it’s their job to put all the stock out.
“However, everything gets put out – unless there’s no room on the shelf which is very very rare [and only really happens] at Christmas.”
- Don’t bother with January sales
We all love nabbing a bargain after Christmas, but Hannah says the TK Maxx January sale isn’t any different to the sales they put on throughout the rest of the year – so it isn’t worth waiting if you see something you like before then.
She explained: “There’s always a sale and there’s usually a sale section.
“But you will always find sale items in TK Maxx no matter what time of year it is.
“They do big up January sales but they literally just change the colour of the sticker.”
- Wait six weeks for bigger discounts
If you’re prepared to wait a few weeks for the item you’ve spotted on the shelf, you might be able to get an even better deal.
Hannah claims products get reduced in price every six weeks until final clearance, which is where the biggest bargains are – according to the Mirror.
She said: “Everything in the shop gets reduced every six weeks.
“And if it’s there for 12 weeks, it’ll be reduced again until final clearance [which is when] everything goes down to like 20p. It’s ridiculous.”
- Hunt through the shop to find top designer items
There’s always designer brands on offer at TK Maxx, but not all of them are obvious.
Hannah recommends searching the shop to find specific brands as some partnership deals prevent advertising.
She said: “Calvin Klein have a partnership with TK Maxx but they’re not allowed to advertise it as part of the deal.
“So if you see [the tagline] ‘America’s best brands’, that’s usually Calvin Klein but we use it for other American brands if we couldn’t find the right signage for it.”
