Burlington Coat Factory to Relocate to Stony Brook

Discount coat and clothing chain will occupy former Linens 'n Things location.

Burlington Coat Factory in Lake Grove will soon relocate to Stony Brook to take over the storefront formerly occupied by Linens 'n Things at 2199 Nesconset Highway.

Construction permits posted in the incoming store's windows show the discount coat and clothing store will be moving in. An employee at the current Lake Grove location confirmed the move, saying the store is slated to open sometime in September.

Company representatives could not be reached for comment.

Linens 'n Things filed for bankrupcy in 2008 and announced that year it would close 120 under-performing stores, according to a report in The Huffington Post.

Burlington Coat Factory will become the from Lake Grove within the past few months. Michael's opened in June, and Staples opened a new location that will operate at the same time as its Lake Grove location, which will eventually close.

Yup! A good move for me. Location, Location, Location. There is much better access in that shopping center.

I think it will brighten up the place and will catch the eye of the movie goers with an impulse buy!

I am happy to have the space FINALLY occupied..but do we really need two close-out stores next to each other?
