Burlington sets Oakdale Mall closing date and Vestal opening date

0

After nearly two decades, the retailer formerly known as Burlington Coat Factory is set to leave the Oakdale Mall in Johnson City.

The store now called simply “Burlington” has been an integral part of the mall since it opened an 85,000 square foot location in August 2003. It originally occupied space that had been used for a large Bradlees store.

Burlington later moved to a smaller site in the Oakdale Mall. This store is scheduled to close on October 9, but it could close sooner if most of the merchandise in stock has sold out.

The company’s website says the new Burlington store in the Town Square mall in Vestal will open Oct. 28. This location is approximately 4.5 miles west of the current store.

The new store will open in a space that had been occupied by an AC Moore Arts & Crafts store. AC Moore closed all of its stores in 2020.

Construction at the Vestal Burlington location has been completed and a large outdoor sign has been installed in recent days.

Shelves and other equipment are set up on site. Merchandise should start arriving at the new store on October 14.
