T. J. Maxx, the national discount retail chain, has begun construction at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza, and plaza officials are hoping the store will be a major boost for a mall marred for years by empty shops. "We expect it to be a big draw," plaza manager Joe Rouzan said of the 30,000-square-foot store, scheduled to open in November. "They're (T. J. Maxx) moving real fast. Just over the past weekend, the construction workers made a lot of progress."

TJX Cos. said it and Fifth Third Bancorp had agreed to settle class-action lawsuits brought on behalf of customers in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada who were victims of a criminal intrusion into TJX's computer system. Under the settlement, customers of TJX stores who had their driver's license or other identification information stolen after making returns without a receipt are being offered two to three years of credit monitoring and identity theft insurance and the cost of replacing IDs.

On the heels of the recent opening of a T.J. Maxx discount clothing outlet, anchor stores at Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza reported higher sales and increased foot traffic the weekend after Thanksgiving, traditionally the year's biggest weekend for sales. Marj Aldolph, general manager of Sears, described sales figures as "superb"--22% higher than last Thanksgiving weekend. She attributed the success to the store's recent $2.5-million face lift and its proximity to the adjacent T.J. Maxx.

During the 1980s, dozens of regional shopping centers popped up in Southern California, but none ever matched the king of the malls, Torrance's Del Amo Fashion Center. Just four years ago, it was not only the biggest in the Southland, it topped all others in the country: more than 3 million square feet of space and 350 stores. About $445 million annually in retail sales. So big it issued its own credit cards.

FRUGAL designer junkies have been wading through racks of ill-fitting overstock at discount chains for years, hoping to chance upon a classic Burberry peacoat or pristine Stella McCartney sweater. Find one of those marked down to wholesale, and it's the thrill of stumbling upon a lost continent. Now T.J. Maxx is promising to make that kind of discovery routine. Last year, the company launched Runway, an in-store boutique advertised to stock exclusively high-end designer apparel.

Against the din of rattling earth-graders, a celebration was held Tuesday to mark progress in the construction of a new regional shopping center for Anaheim Hills and Yorba Linda. Developers of the Anaheim Hills Festival center say their $100-million project may be the biggest of its kind underway in Southern California. That loses a little luster, however, when measured against the weak state of the economy: County retail construction has screeched to a virtual halt from the robust 1980s.

Off-price retailer Stein Mart Inc. has begun opening the first of what analysts say could be as many as a dozen additional stores in Southern California, a move that could intensify what is already stiff competition in the retailing market. The Jacksonville, Fla.-based chain, which operates 170 stores mainly in the South and Southeast, opened its first Southland store in Poway earlier this year.
