TJX said Easter’s timing and cold weather impacted same-store sales.

TJX Cos. Inc., which operates off-price retailers T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, and HomeGoods, reported a jump in sales for the five weeks ended April 6 of $2.4 billion, up 5 percent over a year ago. But at stores open at least a year, sales fell 2 percent, the company said. Generally a star performer, TJX cited a shift in the timing of Easter and recent cold weather as factors in its unusual same-store sales decline. In a statement, however, TJX chief Carol Meyrowitz said “April is off to a good start.”
