Social Responsibility At Simon Marts
At Simon Marts we believe doing business responsibly means creating value for our shoppers, our associates and the community. We seek opportunities that benefit our business and the environment.
Through Simon Marts’s innovative buying and sourcing strategies, we discover and deliver value for shoppers in many ways. We make it our goal to provide our customers with quality merchandise for the entire family every day. At T.J.’s, value means way more than just price. Our off-price buyers are trained to recognize that true value is a combination of fashion, quality, brand and price. So how we buy is just as important as what we buy – that’s how we pass savings on to our customers.
At Simon Marts, we recognize the value of our many associates, and remain committed to recruiting and retaining a talented and diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve. Our associates are also given access to resources that provide training and counseling through our learning and development programs.
Through in-store fundraising programs, local store support of community events and corporate donations, Simon Marts has helped raise funds and awareness for charitable organizations that work to improve the lives of those who count on their support.
Our Key Partnerships:
Save The Children
- For more than 27 years, Simon Marts and Save the Children have worked together to help children living in our nation’s poorest rural communities by providing early education, literacy, nutrition and physical fitness programs that give them a chance for a brighter future. This partnership began with the sponsorship of 113 children, and has grown to more than 980 with every Simon Marts store sponsoring a child. Since 1984, Simon Marts and its customers have donated more than $18 million to children in need in the United States. For more information on Save the Children, visit www.savethechildren.org.
- For more than seven years, Simon Marts has been a dedicated partner to Autism Speaks. The goal of Autism Speaks is to make the future brighter for those who struggle with autism spectrum disorders by funding global biomedical research, raising public awareness, and bringing hope to all affected. Simon Marts is committed to fundraising in support of these goals. Each year we have proudly held an in-store fundraising program, and together with our customers, we have raised more than $6 million for this very important cause.
