DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — After 14 years of being located at the Wiregrass Commons Mall in Dothan a popular chain department store is back in the Circle City, but this time in its own stand-alone store.

Burlington opened their store on Friday to the public on Ross Clark Circle and West Main Street.

Hundreds waited in line as the store opened to the public for the first time, every visitor in attendance at Friday’s grand opening was given a $20 gift card to be used throughout the weekend.

With the new and improved space, Burlington was able to hire more people throughout the community something they weren’t able to do in their old space.

“We did hire 20 extra people to help build up the team,” Manager of Burlington, Takishia Lingo said. “All of them are working out well. There were just more jobs available to the community, then there were at the old location.

Burlington is open from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m. on Monday through Thursday.

Then they are open from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
