Based on several Facebook posts we have seen, and a quick trip to the Marketplace at Augusta, it appears the wildly popular retail chain Home Goods will be opening a store in the well known Augusta shopping plaza.

The store, which will be quite large, will take up two spaces located between The Paper Store and Old Navy.  One of these spaces was most recently occupied by the odd lots discount store Loot.

According to Wikipedia, Home Goods is a national chain that was started in Framingham, Massachusetts in 1992.  Given the name, it should not be a surprise that the stores sell items needed for the home.  Dishes, pots, pans, linens, etc.  It is owned by TJX Companies.  TJX also owns TJ Maxx,Sierra Trading Post, and Marshalls.  As of 2020, there were just over 800 stores nationwide.

Not including the new Augusta location, Maine & New Hampshire locations of the chain include Rockland, Maine, Scarborough, Maine, Bangor, Maine, Gilford, New Hampshire, and North Conway, New Hampshire.

There is no word on when the store will open.  So far, inquiries to the plaza's leasing agents have not been returned.

For those who are fans of Loot, the store has relocated to a spot near Regal Cinemas and Barnes & Noble.
