Burlington sets opening date for 2nd Springfield store

Posted online

Springfield's retail scene is expanding with the launch of Burlington Stores Inc.'s (NYSE: BURL) second store.

The New Jersey-based retail chain set a Sept. 18 opening date for the 3402 S. Glenstone Ave. establishment, according to a news release.

Burlington is occupying nearly 46,000 square feet left vacant in Primrose Marketplace by JCPenney Home Store, which closed in 2019.

A February building permit filed with the city of Springfield listed a declared valuation of $2.1 million for the renovation project. General contractor Grindstone Construction LLC is among companies named in the filing.

Burlington entered Springfield in September 2017 with a 40,000-square-foot store at Springfield Plaza, near North West Bypass and West Sunshine Street. Formerly known as Burlington Coat Factory, Burlington sells clothing and footwear, as well as baby accessories, furniture, home decor and gifts.

The new store will open with coronavirus safety measures in place, such as signage to remind customers and employees of social distancing guidelines; the use of face masks, as required by the city's mandate; and the frequent cleaning of high-touch areas, according to the release.
