TRENTON, N.J. (Legal Newsline) – Two New Jersey consumers allege that T.J. Maxx stores misrepresents the amount of the price reduction of items.
Catherine Anderson and Laurie Munning filed a complaint on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated on Sept. 11 in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey against The TJX Cos. Inc., doing business as T.J. Maxx stores, alleging violation of the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act, the New Jersey Truth in Consumer Contract Warranty and Notice Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that the defendant's Compare At price listed on item tags is a "wholly fictitious and inflated price" used by the defendant as a marketing tool. They allege that the discounted price listed on the tag is actually the true, regular price.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek economic and compensatory damages, injunctive and declaratory relief and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Stephen P. DeNittis of DeNittis Osefchen and Prince, P.C. in Marlton, New Jersey.
