History

The roots of Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse Corporation go back to 1924 when it started as a wholesaler of ladies coats and junior suits. In 1972, the company opened its first outlet store in Burlington, NJ. 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.

The company opened its 500th store in 2012. It went public in October 2013.
