Discount retailer TK Maxx is reportedly looking for new locations as part of expansion plans.
The chain, which currently has around 350 stores in the UK already, is eyeing up over 28 new sites, according to The Evening Standard.
These include spots in Archway, Barnet, Elephant and Castle, and Upminster.
