For years, we've seen countless TV commercials for the Burlington Coat Factory and got excited about sales they were having, only to realize that we would have to drive to the Twin Cities or Omaha to take advantage of the deals.

Some time in 2015, that long drive will be over as the clothing store for the whole family opens a nearly 50,000 square foot store at Dawley Farms on the east side of Sioux Falls.

Burlington Coat Factory has over 500 stores in 44 states and Puerto Rico selling discounted brand name shoes and clothing, baby furniture and accessories. It will be the first Burlington store in South Dakota when it opens in the spring.

The store is expected to bring 50 to 100 jobs to the city as well.
