Burlington plans Fresno grand opening

The Business Journal – February 24, 2014

Burlington, a national off-price retailer, is opening a brand new location in Fresno at Marketplace at El Paseo at 9:30 a.m. on March 28.

It will be one of the first stores to open in the center. A Target store is also scheduled to open there in March.

The retailer will host a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate jobs, community and shopping at the new store. The location is 6509 N. Riverside Drive.

Along with the ceremony, Burlington will host its premier philanthropic program, Burlington Gives Back.  This program is dedicated to donating new merchandise to local charitable agencies in communities surrounding Burlington locations.

The retailer’s national non-profit partner, Fashion Delivers, will work with the new Fresno store to make a contribution to locally-based Marjaree Mason Center, which offers shelter and supportive services to victims of domestic violence in Fresno County.
