    After you've found them interesting, you can take them to M&S and compare to see which are most interesting, and then report back to us in a special thread entitled "Interesting Socks"

    The opening of TK Maxx or the Interesting Socks thread?

    The two combined. One on its own I could cope with.

    Don't forget the RD/Beehive humdinger. This thread could meltdown under the weight of expectations.

    Someone needs to start a new thread, with a poll attached and find out what we think happened

    Taking thread back:

    What's tk maxx like? Is it cheaper than say Primark or Matalan? Only been in a store once. that was to buy a winter jacket in 2004 in the croydon store. I remember it was the winter of 2004 as I left my work in June 2005 and wouldn't buy a winter coat in summer.

    Is it a British store? Why is it called TK Maxx? What is the origin of the name?

    Are you likely to use the store? I've only been twice into the H&M store in Brixton so, not sure will even go in there.

    TK Maxx is hell. There's no sections. They just throw everything in together and you're expected to find what you're looking for.

    They take factory seconds, end of line stuff, all sorts of random. Put it on racks and you go and try your luck. I quite like it.

    Hmm interesting. Sort of like what you get in a sale-only all year round.

    Greebo What? Talk FFS!

    Not quite as IMHO nightmarish as that, but it pays to go in with a fairly open mind instead of thinking "I need a plain red cotton T shirt in this size".

    Open mind? Are you a man or a woman?

    How do my genitals make a difference to being a bit flexible about what clothes I buy? :confused:

    Genitals do make a difference on clothing cuts and fitting.

    You disappoint me - there was I hoping you'd repeat the stereotype of women taking ages and looking at umpteen things with a vague idea of what they want compared to men making a beeline for one clearly defined thing and then just paying for it without even trying it on. :facepalm:

    So I went to the Beehive last night to see if I was still barred, enjoyed a couple of drinks, and then promptly got myself barred again. :facepalm:

    Don't ask, cos I don't even remember how or why :D

    TK Maxx have missed their moment.

    I could hold out no longer and, today, bought socks.

    Were they interesting socks though?

    I get all my socks there now.
    Pants from M&S though.
    Mixed values.

    Yes, in that they have a honeycomb design to hold them up rather than gouging elastic

    Hello. Haven't been on here for aeons, it's lovely to pick up the wandering threads.
    Just walked past TK Maxx & saw the opening date but Ed has beaten me to it with the photo.
    First 500 people get a £10 voucher so don't sell your place in the queue too cheap.
