Miss Burlington Coat Factory?

Burlington Coat Factory in Hoboken was great

More than two years since Hurricane Sandy knocked Burlington Coat Factory out of Hoboken, the signs still hang on the building – and remind us how convenient that place was. Doubt we’ll ever have another place like it in town.

Those Jonesing for some “BCF action,” can find a few in Manhattan, or you can just drive over to Secaucus or North Bergen if you want your fix.

I bet in 10 years or so – this uptown area will certainly “change,” but for the better – who knows. Cookie cutter condo buildings with the same mix of stores gets tiring.

1/23/2013 Update:

A bunch of residents have been wondering what the fate of the Burlington Coat Factory at 1514 Willow Ave. was after Hurricane Sandy shut the place down.

Late last year, the Hoboken location was still listed on their website, and a representative told Hoboken411 that “Right now the Hoboken store is closed indefinitely due to the damages Hurricane Sandy has caused. We are unsure of the opening status right now. We do apologize for the inconvenience.” However, I checked the site again today – and the Hoboken location has been removed.

People I spoke with recently pretty much confirmed they’re never coming back – and the Rockefeller Group will be developing on this parcel in the future.

    I love to shop there. It is always very crowded with both old
    and new Hoboken people as well as out of towners. I would hate to see it become two 40 story towers by the Rockefeller
    Group and get “taken” by eminent domain.
    I think the residents would rather have BURLINGTON…
    Additionally, The Rockefeller Group has a web site with a disclaimer saying they aren’t involved with Mitzubishi and their other web site says they are a SUBSIDIARY of Mitsubishi
    ESTATE COMPANY, LTD.

    IF the UAE buys the downtown terminal, will China buy the uptown Burlington? Which language do we need to learn, Arabic or Chinese? Japanese? When can we keep our own country….
    USA all the way,,,,,,

    Margaret, what brand car do you own? What brand TV do you own? Where do you think your beloved Burlington Coat Factory clothes are made?

    American Apparel on Hudson has clothing that is made in “America All the Way!”

    Wish I could give a more definite attribution, but I’m pretty sure the Hoboken location’s days were already numbered before Sandy. She just delivered an accelerated DNR order. Won’t be surprised if demolition starts sooner than later.

    I’m more concerned with BCF as a whole. I’ve been to the 6th Ave. midtown and Secaucus locations in the past month and both seemed understocked and bereft of customers.

    They sold mostly street gear. But you would find normal piece of clothing from time to time. We liked going there to try on puffy jackets with giant logos. And then leave.
