There's going to be a riot. Like at that Ikea store in Edmonton in 2005
it couldn't be in a better spot.
Pics or GTFO.
Bought at another TX Maxx. Never been very good with photos.
Yes. I cut quite a dash now
In America it's called TJ Maxx... I notice they went all creative and scooted down the alphabet a bit over here. It is, in fact, a lot like Primark in that it's a big heaping mess with lots of cheap crap, but you can apparently find some brand names there. I could never find anything I liked in the store, but the women in my family liked to go in and grab cheap stuff to mix and match.
As for why it is called what it's called, its probably because they're crazy, man, out there cutting prices to the MAXXX.
looks like they are not advertising positions online. my brother told me he has been to his second interview. seems they are going via local jobcentre route.
Opening tomorrow morning - what time will the queues to be one of the first 500 people be forming?
That's easy for you to say.
And so they should.....that's the way to get local people into jobs.
er, how so?
Surely better for the jobs to go to unemployed local people who go regularly go to the jobcentre (which is next door) and live in the local area, than to someone from miles away in north London who happens to have an internet connection at home and can search for the job online.
Yes, I understand that, but someone in North London could still apply for the job and get it couldn't they (through looking through job centre job search machines).
As far as the dole office is concerned, anywhere within an hour's travel is classed as "local", so if someone in North London is looking for retail work, that could come up.
Job Centre threatened me with stopping my dole for not applying for local jobs. I told them I didn't consider Wandsworth as local
Yeah maybe.....I just think it's utter madness to force millions of people to travel all over London when there might be jobs available locally. When you're on a low wage, the last thing you want is to spend your hard-earned on tube tickets and spend half the day travelling. I used to earn £4 an hour and had to travel from east of Stratford all the way to Acton for the priviledge, and it was fcuking grinding.
Well hopefully TK Maxx have decided to employ locally. Would be nice
The queues are huge I've been told.
Queues and a steel band this morning
I was going to go and take a look but I might leave it a couple of hours in that case
Cycled past about 8.50am and didn't think the queue looked that long - it went up Ferndale Rd but only to the three-way junction with Nursery Rd.
Oh dear. Walked past this morning and eyed a very depressed looking steel drum band banging out some cheery tunes. Probably wondering 'how did it come to this'?
I've never seen a queue for a shop opening, so it seemed big to me
Rumours that the staff will clap as the first punter exits brandishing a pair of socks are unfounded.
VP's got a migraine so I can't get to central Brixton today, but it's probably just as well seeing as I don't get paid until next week.
Has anyone been and survived the scrum yet?
I'm heading there now. If I'm not back in an hour call the police
Best of luck. May your bargain hunting spidey sense and elbows be sharp.
Reporting live from scene - no queue! But fuck me it's busy. V jumble sale like. Am running away to Sainsburys
the like was for live at the scene not for patronising Sainsburys
Is it like the night before Christmas or worse?
Im to venture down for a look. Not known for my patience though so predict I will come home empty handed.
