Over time, the Burlington shopping experience has grown to include extensive selections of coats, apparel, shoes, and accessory for the entire family, including baby clothes, furniture, toys, home decor, travel items, and gifts — all offered at up to 65% off competitors’ retail prices at nearly 600 locations nationwide.
Burlington has invested over $1.3 million in the 46,000 square foot San Leandro location and will employ approximately 75 staff. The ribbon cutting ceremony will include a ceremonial delivery of merchandise to be donated to Davis Street Family Resource Center. Through its partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org Burlington will also donate $10,000 to a nearby school to fund the materials teachers and students need to learn and achieve in the classroom.

They also participate in the Warm Coats and Warm Hearts Coat Drive, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk and the WomenHeart campaign in support of Women’s Heart Health.
