Our History

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. Our name was Burlington Coat Factory, and it was an immediate success. We started opening more stores across the U.S. and expanded our product assortment to include ladies’ sportswear, men’s active wear, and children’s apparel, staying true to our off-price model. In the ensuing four decades, our product selection has grown to include baby, home, beauty and our name changed to Burlington Stores to reflect the breadth of our product offerings.
