Homesense to open in Yonkers on March 28

YONKERSHomesense, a rapidly expanding home furnishing chain, is set to open a new store in Yonkers on March 28. 

The off-price home furnishing and decor store owned by TJX Companies is getting ready to move into a 27,128-square-foot space in the Yonkers Gateway Center on Central Park Avenue, according to the website of Urban Edge Properties, which handles leasing for the shopping center. 

The Homesense store will occupy a portion of the former Pathmark supermarket that was closed in 2015 as part of the AP chain’s bankruptcy. The remaining part of the former Pathmark, about 20,856 square feet, will house Marshalls, a discount department store also owned by TJX Co.s, whose other retail brands include T.J. Maxx, HomeGoods and Sierra Trading Post. It was unclear Tuesday when the new Marshalls store is scheduled to open.  

The Yonkers store is the second location in the Lower Hudson Valley for Homesense and the ninth in the New York market, according to TJX. Another Homesense is open in Cortlandt. 

“We’ve seen an incredibly positive customer response to the Homesense stores we’ve already opened,” said John Ricciuti, president of HomeGoods and Homesense in the U.S. “As the U.S. home market continues to grow, we are excited to bring consumers an expanded selection of quality merchandise at incredible prices, along with a new shopping experience in which they can discover and curate the home of their dreams.”

On the grand opening day, March 28, the store will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. 

Regular hours will be 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.
