When I found out about Burlington Coat Factory coming to the Latham Circle Mall, I thought that someone was either playing a late April Fool’s joke or somehow someone  was posting an old story from their archives.

We’ve all heard about a new Walmart Supercenter being built on the property, and now it’s been announced that Burlington will also be going into the new Shoppes At Latham Circle. (Obviously it’s not Latham Circle Mall anymore, but the Shoppes At Latham Circle.) Burlington did have a store in the former Latham Circle Mall. That store closed about three years ago.

Sometime next year is when the new Burlington is supposed to open for business. According to the story from WNYT, as of right now, the Burlington Coat Factory store that’s in Crossgates Mall will also remain open.
