I went to the Hamptons TJ Maxx where celebrities like Amber Heard shop, and it’s great for anyone looking to bargain hunt

  • There’s a TJ Maxx in Bridgehampton where celebrities and Hamptonites shop for designer goods.

  • I went to the discount store during a recent trip out east to see what it was like.

  • I saw a lot of Gucci accessories and heavily marked-down designer shoes.

While a lot of things in the Hamptons are overly expensive, TJ Maxx is a budget-friendly shopping option revered by locals and celebrities alike.

On a recent trip to the Hamptons, I found that there are some hyped-up hot spots that aren’t worth the visit.

But unlike a bakery with just-OK pastries or bars with hours-long lines, this celebrity-favorite discount retail store is a not-so-hidden gem.

Actor Amber Heard was spotted shopping at the store on June 16, and in a previous interview with Insider, reality star Jill Zarin called it “Saks Fifth Avenue in the Hamptons.”

While I disagree with Zarin’s comparison to Saks, I do think it’s a great spot for bargain hunting.

On a recent trip out east, I decided to stop in to see what all the hype was about. From the outside, it looked like any other TJ Maxx.

The discount store is located in the Bridgehampton Commons shopping center off of Montauk Highway.

TJ Maxx sits next to its sister store Marshalls, an AT&T store, and a Walgreens.

It looked pretty standard inside as well. When I first walked in, I was hit with the familiar open floor plan of this discount chain.
