The history of Marshalls
Marshalls dates back to 1956, when a man named Alfred....wait for it...Marshall (are you surprised?) got together a group of forward-thinking enterprenurs to come up with how to offer good deals on brand-name clothing. They knew what they wanted to do, but they weren't quite sure how they could make it happen.
They managed to pull it off, and within 10 years the concept was a big success. Marshalls had become the#1 off-priced chain in the entire country.
In 1995, Marshalls was bought by their biggest rival's, T.J. Maxx, parent company, and the two are sister stores today.
