Burlington Coat Factory

 
Overview
Corporate Profile
Roots of the company go back to 1924 with wholesale sales of ladies coats and junior suits. In 1972, Burlington Coat Factory opened its first outlet store in Burlington, New Jersey. Coats were the primary offering at the original Burlington Coat Factory, but over time the concept evolved into a one-stop shopping experience. Extensive selections of men's and women's suits, sportswear, shoes, and accessories developed. Highly successful baby and youth departments were created. A linens department was added in 1987.

Burlington Coat Factory has remained successful by making value a priority for over three decades. The company, through strategic purchasing, has always been able to offer the latest in designer clothing, shoes, accessories, baby products, and home furnishings at great savings. Burlington Coat Factory maintains a minimalist approach to merchandising, keeping stores modern and attractive, without passing on the high cost of fixtures and decor to their customers.

Today, Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse Corporation is a national department store retail chain offering current, high quality, designer merchandise at up to 60% less than other department store prices. Burlington Coat Factory stores feature coats, apparel, shoes, accessories for the entire family, baby clothes, furniture, toys, home decor items, and gifts. Over 350 stores can be found in 42 states nationwide.[$trackingImpClicks$]
