Burlington Stores has big plans for their Grand Opening in Owensboro on April 30, including the donation of $5,000 to Estes Elementary School.

The new store is located at 2508 Calumet Trace in Gateway Commons. 

“Burlington’s new location features a fresh design that creates a clean and simple shopping experience for customers, making it easy to navigate and find fantastic merchandise at amazing prices,” according to a release from the retailer. “In the new location, customers will enjoy a wide selection of items including ladies’ apparel and accessories, menswear, children’s clothing, footwear, everything for baby, home décor, gifts for every occasion, pet needs, and essential items – all at fabulous bargains. ”

The ribbon cutting ceremony is set for 6:45 a.m. April 30, with the store opening at 8 a.m. Store hours will be 7 a.m. to 12 a.m. daily.

Burlington’s donation to Estes comes through the company’s partnership with  AdoptAClassroom.org. The presentation of the donation to local school leaders and representatives will take place at the ribbon cutting ceremony.

“Funds will be used to support teachers and their classrooms so that they can purchase materials needed for their students to better learn and succeed,” according to a release from the company.

Additionally, the first 100 customers (18 years or older) will receive a $5 Burlington gift card, no purchase necessary.  On May 1, customers will receive a free Burlington umbrella while supplies last, no purchase necessary. 

This location has hired approximately 65 associates and are still hiring. Interested candidates can learn more about joining the team at BurlingtonStores.jobs.    

Throughout the year, the new store will join in the retailer’s nationwide cause marketing initiatives, such as its annual Burlington Coat Drive, supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and participating in the AdoptAClassroom.org campaign.   

Social distancing practices will be implemented in its new locations, including but not limited to the below measures:  

  • Spacious store layout .
  • Signage to remind customers and associates to practice social distancing and remain at least six feet apart.
  • Customers are expected to wear face masks. If a customer does not have a mask but wishes to wear one, the store will provide them one. Masks are mandatory for all associates.
  • Proactive steps to routinely clean and disinfect all areas of the store, including frequently cleaning high-touch areas, providing sanitization materials throughout, making shopping cart wipes available, and have deep cleaning response plans in place .
