Burlington has opened a new retail store in a 30,400-square-foot space at 15505 E. Broadway in Spokane Valley. The store opened on November 2020 in a site that formerly housed Toys-R-Us. It is Burlington's second store in the Spokane area.
Burlington, a New Jersey-based retailer, filed plans with the city in November 2019 to complete more than $1.4 million in renovations to the space, which has been vacant since Toys-R-Us closed in 2018 after filing for bankruptcy protection.
Burlington began as a seller of discounted coats, but now also sells apparel, footwear, baby items, home goods, accessories, and beauty items. The retailer generated revenue of $7.3 billion in 2019, according to its annual report.
The company began as a family business in 1972 with one store in Burlington, New Jersey. It has since expanded to more than 736 stores – including one internet store – in 45 states and Puerto Rico. The company has 13 stores in Washington, including a location on North Division Street in Spokane.
