Burlington Stores to open at Toys R Us site in Park Hills Plaza
Burlington Stores plans to open a store this fall in the former Toys R Us location in the Park Hills Plaza.
Burlington Stores Inc., headquartered in New Jersey, is a nationally recognized off-price retailer with Fiscal 2019 revenues of $7.3 billion. Burlington is a Fortune 500 company and its common stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange.
The company operated 727 stores as of the end of the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2019 in 45 states and Puerto Rico, principally under the name Burlington Stores.
Blair County Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Joe Hurd was pleased to hear the good news.
“At a time when local retail has had its share of challenges, it’s encouraging that a business like Burlington Coat Factory has identified Blair County as a potential location for a business,” Hurd said.
“Assisting retail in regaining its overall footing in our community will be a major focus of our chamber as we undertake some initiatives aimed at local buying,” Hurd said. “While an influx of new retail will certainly have a positive impact on our economy, retaining our current retailers and better understanding their specific needs will be at the top of our priorities list.”
