Hundreds come out for Burlington's grand opening in Florence


Hundreds of shoppers came out Friday for Burlington Stores grand opening of its new 45,689 square foot store at Magnolia Mall in Florence.

The new store is located in the old Sears at the mall.

Officials said the store has created 75 new jobs in Florence. The store is one of seven Burlington stores in South Carolina.

Andrea Claitt said she wanted to check out the deals at the new store.

"I'm out here seeing what's going on. What kind of sales. So, you know, I think it'll bring some spontaneity in the mall. The mall needs some new stores and different things," said Claitt.
