T.K. Maxx?

We recently spotted a T.K. Maxx storefront on a main shopping street in Trier, Germany.

T.K. Maxx, Trier, Germany

To those of us familiar with T.J. Maxx, it seemed like this was some sort of knockoff. However, according to Wikipedia, T.K. Maxx is affiliated with the T.J. Maxx brand in the United States. The name was changed in Europe to avoid confusion with a local retailer having T.J. in its name.
