In Canada, Winners (which I think is the same as TJ Maxx in the U.S…. based only on the fact that they sometimes carry TJ Maxx brand dresses?!?) carries slightly flawed (usually in dying not the actual make up of the sock) Smartwool and Icebreaker merino socks. They are about half the price they are at outdoor stores, and worth it. So maybe they are also available at TJ Maxx in the US? I too find nice wool socks to be one of the best things in the winter months. My feet are often cold, even indoors, and I find Toronto very damp and chilly in the winter.
