Burlington Coat Factory was established in 1924, though retail outlets did not begin to appear until 1972. Despite the name, coats account for only a small portion of the massive stores offerings. Burlington Coat Factories, which are located in 45 states and Puerto Rico, feature clothing, nursery accessories, games, toys, housewares, shoes, formal attire, and much, much more. The biggest niche for the store is the fact that they offer high-quality name brand items at wholesale prices.
The store also provides convenient hours, layaway, and special Baby Depot deals for expecting parents, including extra time for layaway and a registry program. These factors have helped to make the store extremely popular and contributed to the 450 and growing locations.
As do most department stores, Burlington Coat Factory puts on an annual Black Friday sale on the day after Thanksgiving each year. This year, Burlington Coat Factory will be opening at 6 AM on Black Friday and remain open until 10 PM.
Notable sales items mentioned in the company’s multi-page Black Friday 2012 Ad include designer boots for ladies starting at $24.99, men’s jeans for $9.99, and novelty gifts starting at the ultra-low price of $5.99. There will also be a Keurig coffee maker for $109.99 and a 14-piece-set of colorful Rachel Ray pots and pans available for only $69.99.
The great deals offered in lieu of Black Friday, combined with the everyday savings offered at Burlington Coat Factory, are sure to pull in a crowd. The store is a great place to pick up gifts for baby, accessories, unique housewares, and stock up on designer label clothing at rock bottom prices all year round. Some of the high-profile items such as the Keurig are expected to sell out quickly, however good deals always abound at Burlington, as a result, most consumers can stop by Burlington toward the end of their Black Friday shopping day and still walk away with quite a good haul.
