Patagonia, Mountain Hardware, Merrell, etc on 10/11/2011 20:56:19 MDT Print View

Hey all,
Just stopped by local Marshalls store (owned and operated by TJ Max) and found a bunch of good stuff for sale:

Patagonia Merino Wool lightweight hiking socks - $4.99
Mountain Hardware Octans fleece/jacket - $49
Merrell NTR Seismic trail runners - $49
Merrell hiking shoes with waterproof membrane - $59

and other good stuff if look around the store. These may not be the screaming deals from SAC, but they are not bad deal by any means, especially since you can try the stuff at the store.

what area? on 10/11/2011 22:52:08 MDT Print View

a lot of the Marshalls/TJMaxx stuff ends up being regional. Definitely worth checking, but especially so for those near where you found them.

warning on 10/11/2011 23:08:41 MDT Print View

Just a warning. The Patagonia wool socks, in my experience do not last very long at all. I wear wool socks everyday and the patagonia ones started dying within a few months. For everyday where the redhead brand seems to wear better. Even at $4.50 a pair i would pass on them.

I agree, it's regional on 10/11/2011 23:38:57 MDT Print View

Steven, the TJmaxx's in the Boston area carry darn tough brand wool socks. I don't believe I've ever seen them in west coast stores. Maybe because Darn Tough is Vermont based?

I've also seen ice breaker socks in the Boston area.

icebreaker at TJ?! on 10/12/2011 07:27:14 MDT Print View

I've seen the darn tough socks out here, but never icebreaker. I need to visit the one by me more often. I always say that, I've definitely gotten some great deals, but never do =(. I wonder if they get any of the icebreaker baselayers? I didn't think any stores around Boston sold icebreaker.

Marshalls/TJMaxx are really a bargain hunters dream, you never really know what you'll get but sometimes it's a big score.

but yea, I've found that the stuff they carry is regional since a lot it comes from other stores over-purchases, or companies trying to clear out old stock, etc. this usually comes up on fatwallet and slickdeals' "hot deals" forums.

Ross, TJ Maxx, Marshalls...? on 10/12/2011 20:10:37 MDT Print View

Given all the different stores: Ross, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, (other probably depending upon geo) - is one better than the other or you guys hit them all up?

Marshalls and TJ max better on 10/12/2011 21:26:14 MDT Print View

Ross is on the lower end and usually doesn't get the nice stuff. TJ Max gets best stuff, then Marshalls i believe. But you have to act fast if you find something, as they have limited sizes and quantity.

what yuri said, on 10/12/2011 21:57:47 MDT Print View

also, TJMaxx around me seems to have more home goods whereas Marshalls has more clothes. But that may be more store-to-store. I have a few TJ's and Marshalls around and try and stop in when I pass by them. you never really know what you'll find so it's definitely a lot of miss with an occasional hit.

Icebreaker socks at TJ's on 10/13/2011 02:36:14 MDT Print View

Steven, the TJ maxx in Brookline/Allston (harvard st) had the icebreakers. But this was maybe almost a year ago?? It's kind of slim pickings there, but I also swing by when I'm in the neighborhood. I've never seen wool baselayers there...but I have seen ton's of Ed Hardy T-shirts :/

BTW, according to the BPL map, I just found out that we live very closeby! Check it out.

TJ Maxx on 10/19/2011 01:13:46 MDT Print View

Just hit TJ Maxx on Seattle's Eastside and they had Icebreaker mid- and mountaineering- weight socks for $7.99 - looking at BC.com other than being seconds they appear to be current models. I did have to hunt through the socks quite a bit to find them - at first glance didn't see anything worthwhile.

IB socks @ TJMaxx on 10/19/2011 06:26:44 MDT Print View

that's an excellent deal. I may have to stop in to our local spot this AM and see what happens.

I love their socks, much higher quality that smartwool. can't compare to Darn Tough as I haven't tried theirs yet, though if they have those I will grab a pair since they get talked about a lot.

teko smartwool icebreaker on 10/19/2011 10:07:21 MDT Print View

i've had a lot of luck with teko, smartwool, and occasionally icebreaker socks at the TJmaxx here in Salt Lake. seems like they get decent socks pretty regularly...

wee! icebreaker & darned tough on 10/19/2011 12:05:28 MDT Print View

@Konrad scored some in the Allston TJ's. they have a few pairs left. I wear mediums but they also have a fair number of L left, assorted amongst the hiking, running, and skiing styles. They also had a few pairs of extra thick patagonia wool socks and a fair number of darned tough as well. I think I walked out with 6 pairs total (two for running).

I also scored a Calphalon "tri-ply" stainless 10" pan that i've been looking to add to my arsenal =P

Socks at TJs on 10/28/2011 05:21:38 MDT Print View

They finally put out the winter stuff at our local TJ MAxx store. Scored some Icebreaker, and Darn tough socks. Otherwise it was mostly Columbia and Snooz jackets. They had a few MH thin jackets in smaller sizes though they were in bright red. Of course as soon as I got home with 6 pairs of socks my lovely wife laid claim to half of them, claiming she hardly has any.

misc on 10/28/2011 07:12:11 MDT Print View

In my area I've found at TJ Maxx after reading this thread

Darn Tough socks ( My first!)
Icebreaker socks (how are they ?)
Patagonia socks

MH fleece jacket $50, but not of any model that I know - there was a hexagon pattern on the outside.

Under armour coldgear metal tactical mock $50 / 8.4oz size S with tags - tried it on and it seemed to be really warm, and vented well under the arms/sides.

Marshalls
Only thing I found was
Under Armour coldgear hoods for 13
