Burlington Coat Factory to Open at Towne Mallby Denise G. Callahan and Chelsey Levingston
Middletown, OH – The redevelopment of Towne Mall Galleria just took a strong step in the right direction with Tuesday’s announcement that Burlington Coat Factory plans to open an anchor store at the property, one of the mall’s owners said. The discount clothing retailer will open a more than 55,000-square-foot store in fall 2014 at the Middletown mall, Burlington and mall representatives said. Burlington will lease space formerly occupied by Dillard’s at 3455 Towne Blvd., said George Ragheb, one of the investors behind the California group, SA Mary Ohio LLC, that bought the mall in October 2012. Dillard’s department store closed in 2008.
