Burlington Stores, headquartered in New Jersey, has a reputation for being kind to its employees. So far, 60 full and part-time workers hired for the new store, with opening remaining for loading dock helpers. The company also donated $10,000 to Lillian Drive Elementary School in Hazlet as a gesture of goodwill and support for teachers and public education.
The 41,425 square foot store is located at 3010 Route 35, Hazlet at the Hazlet Town Center. The former Kmart/Pathmark center is currently under renovation by a developer with plans to introduce a Panera Bread, another yet-to-be-named restaurant and a Wawa Gas Station. The gas station application is currently before the Planning Board.
