The roots of Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse Corporation go back to 1924 when we started as a wholesaler of ladies coats and junior suits. In 1972, we opened our first outlet store in Burlington, New Jersey. Coats were the primary offering at the original Burlington Coat Factory, but over time the concept has evolved into a one-stop shopping experience. Extensive selections of men's and women's suits, sportswear, shoes, and accessories were developed and then highly successful baby and youth departments were created. Later, a linens department was added.
