Burlington Coat Factory to move into old Wal-Mart building
Burlington Coat Factory is expected to occupy the old Wal-Mart building on
South Carson Street.
The retailer is expected to start operating late February and hold a grand
opening in March in a 70,000 square foot space, according to Joe McCarthy,
the city’s redevelopment manager.
They’ve signed a letter of intent, an agreement to begin contract or lease
negotiations and have agreed on some points of the contract, such as rent
and square footage.
The building was owned by Max Baer Jr., who wanted to use it as a site for
a Beverly Hillbillies casino. He sold it in May to Carson Southgate LLC and
intends to set up a casino in North Douglas County.
