Burlington opens South Minneapolis store, donates $50,000


Burlington Stores  delivered on its commitment to the Minneapolis community with its 10th Minnesota location, which will not only provide area residents with jobs and  merchandise values, but will help to support area students, teachers, and small business owners with an opportunity to further restore and rebuild in the aftermath of the George Floyd Murder last year. 

Burlington presented $25,000 to nearby South High School teachers and students through the retailers’ partnership with Minneapolis-based national non-profit organization, AdoptAClassroom.org. The funding will be used by South High School teachers to purchase classroom materials needed for their students to learn and succeed.  

“We are proud to open our newest location in Minneapolis, offering customer’s great values on brand name merchandise for the entire family and home,” said Michael O’Sullivan, CEO, Burlington Stores. “We have all witnessed this city’s great resiliency and hope to be able to provide opportunities for area residents to continue to heal and rebuild through our partnerships with two locally based charitable organizations. We look forward to furthering our commitment as we become part of the fabric of the community.” 

This location has hired approximately 65 new associates, with more positions available. Interested candidates can learn more about joining the team at www.BurlingtonStores.jobs.
