COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Some would say it's been a long time coming, but now the Burlington Coat factory on Airport Thruway in Columbus is finally ready for the eager shoppers waiting to burst through the doors.

For weeks we've seen commercials, watched as the store marquee was placed, but what is all the hype about Burlington Coat Factory? What makes it different from neighbor Wal-Mart and other major retailers in the area?

"It's a great store, it's a one stop shopping place for your entire family, the one I went to Atlanta even had baby furniture."

Mother and avid shopper, Arlen Jones, says for her it's about cutting down travel time to save a few bucks.

"We don't have to travel to other places to find good prices," Jones said.

News Leader 9 spoke with Regional Vice President Adrian Cushenberry and the store manager about what customers can expect when the store officially opens next week.

"We are looking forward to offering some low prices to the customers in the Columbus area, we are excited about working with the community as well," Cushenberry said.

"It helps bring more selection to Columbus I'm from New York so I'm used to a lot more stores a lot more selections."

A soft open is slated for this Sunday at Burlington Coat Factory. The grand opening is scheduled for Friday October 28th.
