The TJX Companies announced today that the A.J. Wright store in the the Evanston Plaza shopping center is one of 71 stores it is closing permanently.

In a consolidation move, TJX is rebranding the other 91 A.J. Wright stores into T.J. Maxx, Marshalls or HomeGoods outlets.

TJX says the consolidation will let the company focus on its larger, more profitable businesses.

The company already has a T.J. Maxx store just 1.5 miles away at 3337 Golf Road in Skokie.

The A.J. Wright store in the Evanston Plaza, at Dempster Street and Dodge Avenue, is adjacent to the Dominick’s supermarket.

It’s expected to close in either January or February.

Company-wide about 4,400 workers are expected to lose their jobs as a result of the closings, which also affects two company distribution centers.
