Home was not among the categories executives identified as top performers during the fourth quarter, which was impacted by Super storm Sandy. The storm knocked 130 Burlington Coat Factory Stores off line for some period of time.
During the year, the retailer opened 25 new stores and closed two. Total store count at yearend was 500 units - which includes Burlington's online operation. The company remains on course to open 20 to 25 stores each year.
New stores are now titled "Burlington," but the company does not plan to change the signage on stores that carry the coat factory name.
