Burlington Opens New Location In Chattanooga

Wednesday, April 25, 2018

Burlington Stores is opening a new store in Chattanooga at The Village at Waterside, 2521 Lifestyle Way, on Friday, May 11.

The retailer will hold a ribbon cutting at 9:30 a.m.

“We are thrilled to open a new Burlington in the Chattanooga community, bringing even more jobs to the neighborhood and providing local residents with a valued shopping experience,” said Tom Kingsbury, president, CEO and chairman of Burlington Stores. 

Additionally, on Saturday, May 12, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., customers are invited to a day of family fun. The first 500 customers will receive a free Burlington tote, and there will be opportunities for gift card giveaways, kids’ activities, popcorn and more.

This new Burlington store has hired approximately 75 associates. 

To demonstrate Burlington’s commitment within the local community, the national off-price retailer will engage in two philanthropic initiatives to further celebrate the grand opening: 

Burlington Gives Back, hosted in partnership with Delivering Good, will donate new merchandise at the ribbon cutting to a locally-based nonprofit organization.

Burlington, through its partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, will be donating $10,000 to a nearby school to fund the materials teachers and students need to learn and achieve in the classroom. 

Throughout the year, the new store will join in the retailers nationwide cause marketing initiatives, such as but not limited to, the Warm Coats and Warm Hearts Coat Drive, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Event, support of AdoptAClassroom.org and WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease.

Pretending Is Dangerous - And Response
