Burlington Stores began in 1972 as a family run business, with one store in Burlington, New Jersey. In those early days, serving the customer was about delivering a broad selection of off-price coats and outerwear. The company’s name was Burlington Coat Factory, and it was an immediate success. They started opening more stores across the U.S. and expanded their product assortment to include ladies’ sportswear, men’s activewear, and children’s apparel, staying true to their off-price model. In the ensuing four decades, their product selection has grown to include baby, home, and beauty, and their name changed to Burlington Stores to reflect the breadth of their product offerings.
