Merchandising: Filling Our Stores with
For each of the past several years, Burlington has added an average of 25 stores to our organization. Maintaining such dynamic growth requires that we continually fill our stores with quality merchandise that customers love. That’s where our buyers and planners come in.
Whether they work out of our New York City, California, or Burlington, New Jersey buying offices, our merchants make deals in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment; they are immersed in opportunities to analyze and set trends, make bold choices, and find great “buys.” Our buyers and planners are at the epicenter of our business, driving results and filling our stores with must-have items.
Your Career Takes Off Here!
Whether you’re a seasoned buyer or planner, or you’re new to the business altogether, Burlington offers opportunities for professional growth and big rewards.
What is off-price? It’s an “opportunistic-buying” business model that sends our buyers out every week to acquire high-quality merchandise at prices our customers love. It’s fast-paced and NEVER stale or predictable. The most successful members of our merchant team are driven to take calculated risks in an environment that rewards people with top-notch critical thinking skills – people who thrive on doing business with a sense of urgency and excitement!
We Provide the Training You Need
