Tuesday Morning - Discount retailer of upscale merchandise
Tuesday Morning is a retailer chain that specializes in selling discounted name-brand merchandise. With closeouts on domestic and international name-brand cookware, linens, home furnishings, luggage, gifts and fashion accessories usually found in upscale department and specialty stores, it’s no wonder that customers are hooked. Tuesday Morning captures the excitement of shopping by providing deep discounts while keeping the focus on high quality, designer names and quick product turnover - and never on irregular, rejected or refurbished items. The company keeps costs low by preferring low-rent locations as well as hiring more seasonal help instead of full-time workers. The result? Deep savings on products from brands like Perry Ellis, Ellen Tracy, Converse - and only to name a few. Careful though: Tuesday Morning is only open during monthly sales events and is closed for about half the calendar year, so plan your shopping trip accordingly - using Retale!
Tuesday Morning - It all started with a garage sale
Lloyd Ross realized there was a market for surplus high-end items while working for a gift merchandiser. He started buying off excess products from multiple manufacturers and started selling them to department stores at a profit. This promising start was soon followed by a garage sale in 1974, at a local Dallas warehouse where he showcased his collection of surplus merchandise. The event was a hit, and thus Tuesday Morning was born. By the next year, Tuesday Morning was incorporated and by 1990, sales exceeded over $100 million from more than 100 stores. Today, Tuesday Morning has become a treasure hunter’s favorite destination across the United States, numbering at 850 stores in 43 states and reporting annual revenues of over $800 million.
