TKMaxx

Hi!

I would like to know if there is any similar shop to the TKMaxx in Switzerland. I am missing it!

Thanks

Re: TKMaxx

Don't think so! Although if you do a search for outlet centres or malls I believe there are some of those.

p.s. You're thread got me really excited thought for 1 mad minute that TK Maxx might be coming to switzerland, no such luck!

Maybe Otto's Warenposten is about as close as I have seen...

Re: TKMaxx

We have the "Swiss Outlet Park" near us in a town called Murgenthal, and this is a bit like TKMaxx (although not quite as good, or cheap!)

I'm sure there are such outlet parks around your area, too.

Its becoming more and more attractive. I'd get a morning Easyjet flight into Luton and then take a taxi to nearby Hatfield Galleria, shop away and catch the evening flight back home.

Re: TKMaxx

Just a thought, get the Easyjet to Gatwick, have a fun-fun-fun transfer on National Express then get a BA flight to New York, do a bit of shopping,
drop over to Vegas for the weekend....then with your winnings fly back first class to Zurich with no limits on your luggage !!

Genius ! - or just nip over to Germany mitze Ikea and TK !!

Re: TKMaxx

So, anyone knows a good Outlet in Zurich? A Big Big Big One where I can spend hours (I miss the TKMaxx in Dundee)

Mmmmm, Why they do not open a TKMaxx here?

Re: TKMaxx

I don't think the Swiss could handle TK maxx, I need new running shoes, a couple of years ago I got those High performance Swiss B-train shoes for 15 in TK maxx, I think they are 300 chf + here Not to mention all the great ski stuff.

Re: TKMaxx

We miss TJ Maxx and ROSS in US. I can't believe I thought $40 was a lot for a designer pair of jeans. I wonder if TK Maxx delivers to Switzerland.
