Port Chester shopping center sees new Burlington store as CT draw

A large new clothing store is set to open about a mile from the New York border with Greenwich.

Burlington, formerly known as Burlington Coat Factory, is planning to open at the Gateway Shopping Center on the Post Road in Port Chester.

According to a company spokeswoman, Annie Holmes, “We are thrilled to open a new store in the Port Chester community, offering residents everyday low prices on a wide assortment of brand name merchandise for the entire family and home.”

She said the store was set to open Nov. 10. The company is planning to hire about 65 sales associates at the location.

Tuesday, workers could be seen carrying out renovations to the store, which was formerly a buybuy Baby outlet. That chain went into bankruptcy this summer as a result of the financial failure of its parent company, Bed Bath & Beyond. The baby-supply chain, with 120 buybuy Baby outlets, were all closed.

The opening of the new store is being greeted with enthusiasm in Port Chester, which has been undergoing a major construction boom.
