The new Burlington Coat Factory at the site of the old Toys 'R' Us on Hooper Avenue in Toms River is ready to launch.

A company official is saying that the new Burlington will open October 4.

While there were plans to close the Burlington Coat Factory in Brick, officials say that won't be happening. Both stores will be operational and are expected to thrive.

As of Friday, construction was still happening at the Toms River Burlington, but they are expecting to be ready for 10/4.

There's plenty of good news surrounding the new TR Burlington Coat Factory. A closer trip for Toms River residents and Burlington is currently hiring, and anyone interested in applying can text RETAIL to 97211.
