Discount clothing retailer Marshalls is expanding in Canada with six new stores in Oshawa, Hamilton, Burlington, Kitchener, Barrie and Ottawa opening March 29.

“Over the past year, we’ve seen a strong desire for affordable fashion” said Marshalls spokesperson, Colleen Uncao, in a statement issued this morning.

Marshalls entered the Canadian market last year, with six GTA stores in Ajax, Etobicoke, Leaside, Mississauga, Scarborough and Woodbridge.

Marshalls is owned by The TJX Companies Inc., which also operates Winners and HomeSense in Canada and T.J. Maxx in the U.S.

Like Winners, Marshalls offers current fashions at discount prices, but with a stronger focus on clothing for the entire family. Marshalls locations also offer a large selection of boxed shoes.

TJX has more than 2,800 stores worldwide and reported $22-billion in revenues in 2010.
