Plans call for a store approximately 25,600 square feet. It’s expected it could be open in the second quarter of 2011.

The Keizer location will be the sixth location in Oregon and the first in the Salem area. All five currently-open stores are located in the Portland area. There are about 750 Marshalls locations in 42 states and Puerto Rico. According to its website they plan to expand into Canada in 2011. Its parent company, TJX Company, also owns TJ Maxx, with eight Oregon stores. The company is based in Framingham, Mass.
