Happy Friday! It’s been an exciting week for Memphis, home of our global headquarters.

  • Last Saturday, the University of Memphis Tigers hosted Ole Miss for our annual football throwdown. With a score of 37 to 24, Memphis earned a major victory – our first 13-game winning streak ever!
  • That evening, native Memphian Justin Timberlake became the youngest person to be inducted into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame. He celebrated the fun with a rousing tribute to our Tigers, as he and Jimmy Fallon led the crowd in the U of M Fight Song!
  • In business news, Fortune 500 company TJ Maxx has signed Memphis’ largest new lease of the year so far, 800,000 square feet and hundreds of new jobs!
