From cashier to retail associate to supervisor, half a dozen jobs are still unfilled at Burlington’s newest location.
Burlington Stores—formerly known as Burlington Coat Factory—is coming to American Fork at the Meadows, on 268 North 750 West. The store will be 32,800 square feet in size and is expected to open in March.
The New Jersey-headquartered store retailer, named after the city in which it was started, is almost half a century old. American Fork’s location will be its 8th in Utah.
“We are thrilled to open a new Burlington in the American Fork community,” Tom Kingsbury, CEO of Burlington Stores, said. “This new location brings jobs to the community and provides a great shopping experience for the entire family. Whether they’re looking for brand-name clothing, stylish home décor items, or anything for baby, customers will enjoy significant savings and discover new merchandise arrivals each week.”
Burlington Stores, which has stores in 45 states and is publicly traded on the NYSE, is the latest nationwide retailer to come to American Fork, helping boost sales tax revenues for the City’s coffers.
American Fork sales tax revenues, which have never been higher, are estimated to reach $9 million in 2019. It is now the largest revenue source for the City and is anticipated to grow by 5%.
