Marshalls in Crystal Lake to close after holidays

CRYSTAL LAKE – Holiday shoppers planning to stop in the Crystal Lake Marshalls will have one final season to make a trip before the department store closes its doors in mid-January.

TJX Companies, parent-company of Marshalls and T.J. Maxx, announced the Marshalls at 6120 B Northwest Highway in Crystal Lake would close its doors a couple of weeks into 2014.

Colleen Beauregard, spokeswoman for TJX Companies, said the closure was a result of ongoing company assessments, and that the T.J. Maxx location at 230 Northwest Highway would remain open.

“We are always assessing and reviewing our real estate strategies and our decision to close the Crystal Lake store reflects that thinking,” she said. “We are certainly grateful for the patronage of our Marshalls customers and believe they will continue to find great values at our nearby stores.”

Economic development officials with Crystal Lake could not immediately be reached for comment on whether discussions have started for filling the soon-to-be vacant space.
